I've done this way too many times when playing around in manual mode.
It doesn’t SHUT DOWN the engine like you would think that phrase means, it just kills the fuel input (or whatever it does) until rpm is in acceptable bounds and then resumes normal operation. When the limiter is doing its job, you should notice it right away. It gives you quite an uneasy feeling, sort of similar to what traction control feels like when it kicks in, but a little more violent.
<crazy>(Well, it makes me feel uneasy because my car is telling me “Hey I don’t like that, it hurts, stop it,” and we all know we dont want to hurt our own baby...)</crazy>

You shouldn't be going to the redline anyway, the optimal horsepower for the e36 is 5900 and you don't redline till 6500.

I agree. you shouldnt push the rpm to the limit if you want to have your car for a long time. 5500 should be fun enuff
