Rev Limiter?

This might be a stupid question but i need to know. Do the e30's or any BMWs have rev Limiters?

My chip bumped my redline up by 400rpm...

Yes.

Also -- and please don't interpret this as me being mean -- it seems you have a lot of basic questions that can be answered using the search function or Google/Bing. We encourage our members to use those options to ensure their question hasn't already been answered elsewhere.

^^ Daniel, I strongly believe that you have missed your calling...you should be some kind of international diplomat, bringing world peace and prosperity through your well put and well chosen words!
