Rev limited when cold?

Saw a Youtube video of a CLS63 with the M156 engine, and the owner claimed the engine speed is limited to ~3500 when it's cold. Is that true? Didn't think so.

Would be great if it is, so bonehead service techs don't rev the crap out of it when it's cold...

Nope. I have a dash cam and caught a body shop revving my car when cold. And my C mode revs above 3500 rpm when cold sometimes. Absolutely not true that there's a rev limit when cold.

Nope- I can confirm there isn't one on my '12 either. I've dropped the hammer before it was fully warm before... Not one of my proudest moments, I know.
But, its not everyday a GTR pulls alongside of you and wants to run!

Which one? Pro's/Cons?
In the market for one. Been browsing and see BlackVue/FineVu are popular choices.

I have the A118. It's like $50 on amazon. The new A119 is supposed to be even better. I have been looking at the BlackVue 650 2 channel so that gps speed is stamped on the video and can be played back via a phone on the spot. That would be better for traffic stops and accidents to play back video. Mine is a cheap camera that requires you to pull the SD card to see the video. It's a great budget cam. If I were doing it now, I would get the A119c (the C is the capacitor version). I am actually thinking about getting the A119c for my girlfriend. It depends what you want the camera for, but youtube has plenty of reviews for cameras. On Friday when I get off this ship I can look up the dash cam channel that I follow on youtube.

So I have used both. The A118 was my test camera to see how well I would like it. After using it for about 8 months, the only issue I saw was when I left it on the windshield in the Texas summer. The screen would just go white instead of showing the video during start up. Only happen once though...

After doing some research though, I finally upgraded to the BlackVue 1 ch. It has wifi so you can view videos from your phone and a parking mode too which is awesome in case something happens to your car while your gone.

Both are great dashcams from my experience, but the blackvue has more options, which is why it cost more too, that I wanted to give me more peace of mind.
