Sat Nav unit Champ 2 change VIN

I’ve just bought a fully loaded Cooper D Convertible for my Daughter.

The sat nav isn’t working.

Looks like someone has changed the head unit and I understand that it’s still programmed with the VIN from the donor vehicle.

This is stopping the system initialising.

BMW say they can’t change the VIN stored in the head unit and I need to spend £1000 on a new one.

Is this true or are they trying to pull a fast one.

Do any of you experienced members know if the VIN number in the head unit can be changed and effectively married to the car.?

Thanks in advance of any advice.

I had exactly the same problem with a digital speedometer in my Renault .
I suspect that there must be a way round the problem .
