'Looks like a 'f**ked iDrive' issue, as the technicians might say!
You should be able to assign the buttons as you want, Paul.
I think they will certainly have to try re-booting the iDrive with their diagnostic DIS SSS machine, or whatever they currently use, and will need to check the TCU (telematics control unit).
I'm sure they'll be able to get it working pretty soon, Paul, as long as they don't need to re-install the entire Progman version, which I doubt.
Here's hoping they'll soon let you get back to finding out the time of the next showing of the Simpsons at your local cinema!
All the best.
