Coding Friendly Dealership DMV

Just purchased my 2015 328i CPO and enjoying it so far. I wanted to code in a few things like sport+, launch control, folding mirrors etc. Which service departments in the DC area would you guys recommend that wont give me a hard time for coding.

Thanks

Having the coding won't cause problems, but if they have to update the system during a service you might lose the changes.

I got my BMW from Fairfax and have spoken to the service manager and he said they are fair and don't void warranties for things not being affected. Meaning if you tune the car and the Mac breaks... it's still covered.
