None that I know of. I think that's valid. Ultimately every color is going to have an ideal light. To me it's about finding the color that works well in a lot of conditions. I feel like silver is...

Ours does number 6 as well. It's easy to work around once you know what it's actually expecting, and I too suspect that it'll be fixed in an iDrive update at some point. Not worried about it.
