The problem of missing pixels probably most common for all above mentioned models. It is very frustrating to have an premium brand car and being unable to see the computer information messages.
Small tip before you purchase - the newer is your car the bigger chance is that you'll need new LCD display as well and if you'll keep your existing LCD display - new ribbon cable installation would not help. So if you decided that you are able to perform the installation - disassemble your MID and inspect the condition of your original LCD screen before you order this part.
If you see something like on the photo below - LCD needs to be replaced:
Make sure, that you have special soldering iron T-Tip for installation (type TTIP into the search box).
