I was just wondering if anyone knew the recommended speeds for each gear on the BF 6 Speed manual boxes? I have just purchased the car and noticed that they do not have a redline. I am assuming that this means that the engine shuts off before any damage occurs? I dont want to find that out the hard way so i was wondering if anyone knew? The owners manual just states sppeds for the 6 speed auto trans.

Limiters around 6100-6200 from memory.
You'll know when you hit it cause your head will just about go through the windscreen.
