All those waring symbols are just BMW dumbing down for the US market...so I've been told!

Trouble is you need to buy a book so you can decypher them.

it's to stop the engine labouring...on manual cars it shows what gear you should be in and 30mph is 3rd usually

In a manual transmission model the dual mass flywheel is working very hard in these conditions to cushion the drive.

It still feels very smooth and un-laboured because the vibration is being absorbed by the springs in the unit, I would imagine they fitted the light to stop you from doing this.

Yeah nothing to worry about. I get it when in cruise control, slow down using cruise control and don't change gear to match.
