The manual says "Always avoid engine speeds in the red warning field. In this range, the fuel supply is interrupted to protect the engine."

I would say close to the redline should be fine :)

I got the same message at 16,500 miles. the dealership topped it off and performed a pressure test to which they found no leaks at that time. It's been ok ever since.

I have the same car and tires (but on a 403M wheels) with 21K and the wear is even.

IMO the alignment/camber was off from the factory to make that much of uneven wear in 24K.

Lower insurance cost and safer for drivers is great but dealers will brag about this and consumers won't get much off the MRSP.

Same here but get the 228i, Estoril Blue, 6MT, M-Sport with lighting package through an ED and PCD.

If I'm not mistaken the 135i scored a 97 from Consumer Reports.

From the BMW website is says the MT is short "throw" and has "enhanced synchronization of shifts" so it probably does not rev match.

That's great to hear. Can't wait to have a BMW coupe 6MT.

IMO the lighting package does not define a BMW but if it was me, I'd spend the $ for it.

Maybe it's the picture lighting but IMO it would look better if the lower splitter had the same color of the front bumper to give it a "closed" look.
