It's a nice feature, good for safety with a handsfree phone, when you don't want to dictate all your phone numbers to Amazon, or Google, or whoever.
Good luck - but I would keep your expectations low. I pushed my dealer to get an official BMW response and was told it was an intentional decision to delete the touchpad as well as the CD changer for the X2 M model. When I pressed about getting it swapped out for the touchpad controller, I was told it would not be compatible with my hardware (i.e., the head control unit). I am not going to fight it much more at this point as I am looking to sell the car anyway.
