Software update difference

I just had the update done to my 11' 535. I had it done to primarily resolve an idle fluctuation issue. So far the idle issue hasn't occurred since. I also noticed the steering feels a little tighter, the tip in is not that much different, and there's a highlight on the mpg bar. The mpg bar seems more responsive now too. What odd is that the word mpg changes from blue to red and back. Not sure what the point of this is.

If you get the latest, latest update, you'll notice that the font size on the MPG figures on he bar have gotten smaller.

Very weird.

My gues would be that it indicates whether your bowing to the EPA/GREEN thugs or not. Go big red!
