As a software update? No. You could probably retrofit the new computer in but I'm not sure it'd be worth the cost.

Because the hardware changes were significant - BMW changed the CPU from one manufacturer to an Intel Based CPU and also changed the graphics chipset. It would be like trying to run MAC software on a PC.
