Um no, they don't run at 16,000, at least not so far. The dealer will remove the (artificially low) rev limiter at the first service. The rev limit after the first service is just over 14,000, you are free to set the shift light at any rev you want. Running it against the limiter is not a good thing, although I'm sure lots of people do, intentionally or not.
