I've always wondered how much integrity there is in redline display? Since BMW fudges (for legal reasons) the speedo, are the tachs honest? I know dynos report the honest number, but are they always directly correlated to the indicated tachometer? Could BMW just say the F8x redlines at 7700 rpm, paint the redline there and have the engine only turn over 7400 rpm at that point, or would the moon just instantly collide with the earth, kill all mankind and doom us all?
