Brand new M3, navigation/radio fails to start occasionally

I've got a brand new 2012 M3 I picked up 4 months ago and sometimes when I get in the car and start it up, the navigation and radio does not turn on. Through-out the time I'm driving, it looks like it tries to start up, occassionally the BMW logo pops up and I can hear a fan or something turning in the dash, but it doesn't. Its happened twice since I got the car. Anybody else have this issue? Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Anytime you have a new car with issues, go directly to the dealer.

Voltage issue, loose connection, software issue, or defective hardware.

Sick the dealer on it and I'm sure they'll replace whatever is malfunctioning.

Good luck and let us know what they find. It's very rare that I see CIC's with problems like the older CCCs had.
