CIC iDrive keeps rebooting

Hi Guys, ive just bought a E91 320d tourer with a rebooting iDrive on the 2.5 hour drive home it keep rebooting over an over, would come on and play the radio a little bit but then went off again, this morning it came on and stayed on, I was able to connect my phone, listen to the radio, played music via bluetooth (just about as it played very glitchy) and did so for a few hours, parked up came back a couple of hours and it still worked fine, then after another stop off with the engine off when I came back to the car it started to do its rebooting, I can hear the cd drive resetting as it boots up.

I have read so many forums trying to figure out the issue, I really don't want to spend 1k on replacing the iDrive only to find it was the bluetooth module or a loose cable in the back how can I tell for sure what the issue is.

Id appreciate some wisdom for those that know.

Usually hard drive, unplug and see if it stops rebooting

Either hard drive as stated above, or the unit itself has developed a fault. You can replace it with a used unit, it will work fine although if you want navigation or voice control to work you'll need to update the FSC codes. I had to replace mine, didn't bother with sorting out the nav or voice control as both are worse than useless in my view, and I have an aftermarket CarPlay unit in mine so I have modern nav and Siri voice control etc.
