Did the BMW diff fluid change containers?

Last time I did it it was a gray bottle with green cap. Now I see pictures for the same part with a clear bottle and red cap.

Looks fine, it's still SAF-XJ +FM, the change in bottle could be as simple as a new supplier for Castrol, or BMW wanted a different bottle.

Confirmed the new bottle is fine, I just had all my fluids changed. On another note, diff fluid is not cheap....
