Mini entertainment system/radio needs fixing

Entertainment system needs fixing (keeps rebooting)

Hi all

My 2015 Mini’s onboard entertainment system has gone haywire: it reboots every 30 seconds and can’t receive DAB radio. Happened literally overnight - no warning and I didn’t do anything different.

The local Mini/BMW dealership wants £200 just to diagnose the problem - and I think the whole thing will need replacing.

Just wondering is there are any other options I could consider - either cheaper ways to diagnose & fix the problem, or DIY ways to replace the system?

Thanks!
