Looking at M240i and can see that the early G42 cars seem to have a different dash screen layout to a current new one and also the auto gear selector.

Has there been a spec change and when - also what else was changed ?

Around May last year the newer style dash was announced along with the roll out of idrive 8. Vehicles with this spec have just started arriving in the UK.

The change was due to the chip shortage.

dash wise yes. why else would they release a car then three months later update the model range.
I had a test drive in the "release" dash equipped car and after the drive I was told the dash was changing plus a few other changes.

id7 to Id 8

Id 8 uses less chips than separate controller's than Id7.
