F10 instrument cluster blackout

My 520i is now just 1 month old. Several times now the entire instrument cluster has blacked out. First there's a strong white flash - everything goes bright white, then it goes totally black, and a second or so later, everything returns to normal. I'm wondering if anyone that has experienced this, has had it resolved. Also wondering if there's been a recall for this issue. When it happened last night, I had a feeling my headlamps blacked out for a split second.

Not really but have had the extended information go out. A restart clears it up. Happened twice in 3 years.

Instrument cluster blackout continued...

Mine has done it around 5 times in 5 weeks. I took it into the dealership 2 weeks ago, and they found the fault code, but they say they need to replicate it before they can take things further. It is now going in again on 12 March for 3 days, so they can try again to replicate it.
