Mein Auto: 328i F30
Eco Pro mode different after update

Hi guys, fair warning this is not a post the Senna wannabees will be interested in, BUT...recently had my 328 in for it's first service, and the SA told me there was a software update due. I haven't noticed any changes since the service, except now in Eco Pro mode the 'extra miles earned' indicator is racking up miles much, much faster.

Previously I could use Eco mode on a whole tank of gas and maybe get 8-9 'extra' miles, since the update I got 12 extra miles in 100 miles driven. I don't know if this is real or not but I just filled up today so will calculate the mileage and see if there's any improvement, but based on this I should get about 40 extra miles on this tank.

Anybody else seen this?
