You can if you are in the S (=manual) mode.

Definitely, you really need to be careful about this. Don't forget also that there is a limited amount of how many times you can hit the rpm limiter (I think it is something like 10), after which you need to urgently take the car in for a major overhaul in the engine.

Come on, honestly how can you think that the engine can be damaged by hitting the rev limiter... The rev limiter prevents over-reving by cutting the fuel supply. By the way, there have been a couple of threads on this exact same issue already. If logic / common sence does not tell you anything on this, then maybe running a search before posting would give you the answer...

I was cooking an omlet this morning and I put my hand too close to the flame and felt a slight burning sensation. I pulled my hand away quickly, and have no visible redness. But now I am getting really worried. Am I scarred for life? Will the pain ever go away?

And more importantly, should I never cook an omlet again?

You should sell your hand before it gets too swollen.

Do you think I will take a big hit in trading my hand in now, and upgrading to a hook or perhaps some type of cyborg attachment?

The op probably forgot to mention that his auto was in the break in period still, hence the anxiety. This post is a perfect example of why BMW owners, particularly M3 owners, are hated. Maybe there is a little validity in the stereotype.

Or maybe you are just a little sensitive? Or just a rusty sense of humor? True, we (or at least I) should have used smilies. Either way, just having a little fun.

Anyway, you could be right, he could be in break-in still. Answer is still the same - no harm done. Of course, during break-in, you don't want to make a habit of it. There was another identical thread very recently too, the OP is encouraged to search it out if he desires more affirmation.

Chop off your hand now before it spreads to the other hand.

I purchased my e 90 m3 for 25k because it was redlined during break in. BWM told me it probably needs a new engine, and they would not pay...

Take an exhaust sample to see if the engine is okay. Any kind of bag works good...a ziploc would be perfect. Fill the bag with exhaust fumes and drop it off at the dealer.

They'll call you with the results within 24 hours.

I heard you can fake the results though if you fill your car with a few gallons of green tea.
