KOMBI 7844321 7844314 -7 ???

I'm puzzled about the KOMBI section. This was downgraded? Dealer does not know and I'm anxious to find the answer. Hopefully someone on this board knows why this has happened?

Improvements because of the update;

Idrive is much more responsive (espacially my big Ipod collection loads 3x faster)
Better cold start. The extreme lag when switching from reverse to 1st gear is gone. It's still there but noticably shorter.
It appears to pull a little harder but I have not measured this with dyno.
Just because the # is lower doesn't mean it's downgraded. The difference of the two software versions doesn't mean anything.
