I have two DICE kits, both in my 5 and my 7.
Your problem only displaying 11 characters can be solved by switching the display option under CD 6. Get out your instruction manual and play with it.
My DICE kits both let me play with the iPod controls in addition to steering wheel and head unit controls. Both of them also let me search through artists--alphabetically.
To be perfectly honest, your complaints sound more like you haven't taken the time to learn how to use your hardware properly. Both of us have DICE kits installed in E39's, so I don't think our difference of observations of functionality is a hardware difference.
