If the whole panel suddenly goes black you'll drive your car the same way you always do, using logic and common sense.

I had a Taurus with no functioning speedometer or tach, a Corvette with no functioning fuel gauge, never spun out of control because of it.

A gauge cluster is a useful but not essential piece of a car.

Also, I wouldn't expect this to trickle into the 3 until the next generation. Large custom high res automotive displays are not cheap. Theres quite a bit of cost delta between that 7 and your 328. The 3 series will get it the same time it gets a $50k starting price.
