2011 cic Idrive continuous freeze and crash

Car is a 2011 335is, earlier this week it started behaving odd.
First odd thing was a tps system failure warning that cleared on restart. That happened a couple times randomly. The next day the system started crashing and rebooting non stop as shown in this video:

I took it to an independent shop, I thought the battery could be dying. It was the original battery and I was getting some battery discharged warnings.
He tested the battery with 3 different tools, all said the battery was 100% healthy, just low charge.
We replaced it anyways with a brand new battery and hard reset the Idrive. No change.

I did a search here in the forum, lots of posts about crashes but not much continuous like this. One post said there was a fault with the Bluetooth in the telemantics unit, that unplugging the unit stopped the problem.
I tried unplugging the entire telemantics unit, no change.

Of course the cars cpo warranty just expired last month...
So next stop is the dealership.
Anyone have any advice?
