this is a common problem, the LCD panel is failing

 

the best fix is to send out the unit for repair, any of the other fixes you read about online are risky and likely to be less than permanent

 

here are options for such a repair service: http://www.clusterrepairsuk.co.uk/featured/bmw-instrument-cluster-lcd-pixel-repair and also http://www.speedofixer.co.uk/pixels.html
