Default 2008+ e9X M3s DSC question

Guys,

Quick question. When you press DCS on the car the light on the dash lights up yellow/amber. If you continue to press the button, does it light up RED? Are there two stages where it lights up or just one.

I thought there were two stages of DSC, but now the dealership is telling me there is only one.

Am I confusing this?

Only one setting with the DSC switch. If you have the I-Drive option, I understand the M Dynamic mode is a less intrusive DSC setting. I have no options except DCT and comp package, so DSC is either on or off for me. I suppose the mid-range setting would have some advantage for some owners. But the car is so forgiving in handling dynamics, I really don't think many experienced drivers would want to use any DSC setting on track, and on the road it doesn't much matter anyway.

Only on or off unless you have M mode via iDrive.

Even with the M mode DSC setting, you can't select it via the console DSC button. You need to define your M mode settings in iDrive and then access them via the M button on the steering wheel.
