"M" Steering Wheel Button???

Forgive me for this silly question. When I engage my "M" button on my steering wheel I get a "green circled M" on my dash display. In the past when I did this I would get a "orange circled M." The only thing I did was change my M settings to be "race ready." My silly question is why the two different circled M colors? Thanks, Q

I belive you are talking about the DSC off light. Did you change that in your settings?

Is that on top of the extra hp I get after the 1200 mile service?

Tommy...
In my M settings I shut off the DSC and maxed out everything else...

Scheerspeed...'race ready' is just a name I gave it with my current M settings thats all.

Thx, Q

I think the Green Circle M means M-Mode settings are on. As far as the Orange light, doesn't it say "MDM?" If you see that, you have M Dynamic Mode turned on, which you've turned on in the I-Drive Menu.
