Wow, that's about as bad as I've seen for the MID display. Check out this link for getting BMWNA to pony up for at least a portion of the dash replacement--often they will give a break in conjunction with the MID display, but likely they won't give any break to just replace this part:

There is a DIY somewhere that gives instructions on how to remove and completely dismantle the MID display...if you are patient and handy with a soldering gun. Should be a link in the above linked discussion. Good luck!

can get same radio on eBay for like 150-250$ depending on pixel quality... this is a very common problem that many have...
you can try to fix it...

that is a DIY fix if you want to try to repair yourself

mine is messed up too but i cannot find my same radio... mine has all 6 buttons on the right and its rare it seems...

you must replace your radio with the same one that is in the car currently as there are several differnet configurations available

WOw... pretty bad there...

get a used one but again eventually some pixels will just disappear after a while.. another interesting solution is to get an aftermarket stereo.

I prefer the oem look but that maybe an option for you... also see if someone will fix yours for you and shoot them some cash :)
