I like how they made the 2012 interior with the leather on the dash......I want to add this dash into my car with a HUD (supplied by ofer)
My car is sitting at the dealer it has a bcm issuse because i wired something there (leason learned DO NOT WIRE ANYTHING TO BCM3 DASH PANEL)......here are some pics of the 2012 dash

It's not that bad. Bunch of screws and such, but the dash literally just pops in and out of place after they're all out.

i checked all of the fuses they were fine......what happen was i had a switch powered to bcm3 for my strobes and it sparked...i replaced the fuse with a good one and still the car wasnt acting right. i just want my car back and the bill to be under 500 and then im taking all my lights off or wiring them to a place where it wont give me issues

That will not work, you dont have the rest of the wires built in to the main dash harness.

I've seen the BCMs on ebay for about $100 and the program is only $50. Install is about 5 minutes. You should be able to fix yours for under $200.

my faith in dealerships have gone down hill badly they are parts changers and car breakers.. i had my pdim unit changed and the dealer broke the inner structure of the arm rest and just stuck it back together because they didn't know how to take out the clips... i had a recent issue with a camaro where the computers were going crazy.. i had the ecm/bcm reflashed but i still had a srs light on.. ended up the srs ecu locked up i had to send it out to have some type of reprograming done and its perfect now.. i think you have a module issue more than anything else

Would love to find a 2012 dash like that, would almost be worth pulling the dash back off again.
