My 2011 535i uses gray triangles with varying outline (yellow or red), depending on amount of traffic. Granted, the outlining is a bit hard to discern. In extreme cases, I also get a warning on the multi-function display of "Traffic Jam" or "Accident" with a yellow triangle icon. One issue I have, and others dispute this, is that depending on navigation route, the traffic indicator on nearby roads will disappear, the system thinking I won't consider those routes as alternates. I would like all traffic displays near where I am travelling to remain present, regardless of my specific road route. Also, I don't get any traffic indicators unless guidance is actually engaged. I know of at least one board member who claims traffic indicators are always present, guidance mode or not.
