2012 35is and >1,200 miles driving on our ED. A good 120 minutes in the 125-160ish range (mph) at the end if it. Never limped it. Then ESS tuned and two days of very spirited driving with the in-law's driving their M roadster and no limp for us.
I did track my N55 auto an limped it 3 laps into manually shifting, but no limp for the first 4 runs in AT sport mode.
I'm very surprised you could limp you 35is on public streets without wrecking it, causing a wreck, or getting arrested.
