I think the BMW has something similar as well, but I could be wrong. I thought the DME had all the good information and that's how they rejected a lot of warranty work on some new e46 M3 proving that the car was over revved and how many times etc.
Yeah, i tell you it's invasion of privacy....

Yes, the new M3s and some of the new BMWs also have this.

They can get away w/ this because they relate this to being a safety issue :mad:

I know that GM has one in all new vettes.
It basically so they can void ur warranty if they find youve been beating on the car. I guess they know their cars suck ass in the reliabilty dept. so they figure thats one way to get out of it. Lucky for us honda engines don't have the same problems. My brother had an integra and redlined his car on a daily basis and the car had 95k miles on it and still ran like new when he totaled it. Prob why honda won't be installing those on their cars.

Yeah it does suck. I mean if I ever get into a accident it might be helpful, but it'll suck for like major problems. Like the dealer can turn around and blame any incident as our fault...:mad:

hey hey now, wait a minute... how is this invasion of privacy? How does driving a car make you any different from an airplane pilot? Whenever there's a plane accident, you'd better believe the FAA wants to know what the hell happened. Nobody claims that black boxes are an invasion of privacy... they help save lives by finding out what went wrong prior to an accident.

I am all for automobiles keeping records from the airbag monitoring system. I'm glad in the case in the article investigators were able to use it to prove their case.

Now, the day I'll argue against it is when the information is checked without any particular reason, only to find if you may have been speeding in the past and such, much like that tracking system story that came up recently about rental cars...
