The difference from changing differential

Recently i have changed the differential on my 330. I had to do it because the old burned out. I did not know that 330s came originally with 3.38 differentials. So i bought 3.46 then I find out that the shaft' does not match, then i went to bimmer' part out and got the 325i shaft. After i had Put it together, i test drove it. Everything went great.
having the old 3.38 diff' i had a problem shifting from 3d. To 4th. Gear when flored, unless u manually shift it.
The new 3.46 solved this issue. As if the main computer gets tricked, calculates' the speed and gears and shifts later while rpm higher.
The lagg, which i had originally went away.
