: Steptronic +/- direction change

i recently got my 06 X5 and noticed that the + is actually shift down and the - is actually shift up, my last 2 BMWs were steptronic also a , 2000 323ci and a 2002 540i, they were actually reverse of this where + was shift up and - was shift down.

am I hallucinating here or BMW changed direction on the steptronic shifting?
