Not my coworkers car but close enough, 2003 M5. The digital display in the dash is starting to fail. Pixels are starting to drop out when the interior of the car is particularly dry. From our discussion his findings on the BMW forums he frequents point to a failure in the way the display is attached. He found a walk through on how to remove it and fix it but he is wondering if it will easier to just replace it instead of taking his dash apart twice.

Difficulty: He actually called the local BMW parts department and they said “we don’t produce/carry that part any more” you will have to go 3rd party.

Any collective knowledge I can pass along?
