Any local shops that can troubleshoot i-drive/electronics related issues?

No problems yet, but I'm seriously thinking of not buying the extended warranty. Even if I do, I will only get Powertrain + . So anyone know local shops that can diagonse and fix electronics/i-drive related issues, even if it's related to mechanical issues?

For instance, say I have get a EDC related code, someone needs to be able to diagonse to see if it's a eletronic issue or mechanical issue, and be able to fix either.

thanks.

Martin Motorsports uses an Autologic device (http://www.autologic.us/en-us/pages/homeproducts). They were able to do a full diagnostic scan of my 540 using it. I would presume that the device has such a capability for the E9x cars as well.

I'd recommend J&F Motors in Arlington. They utilize a BMW Diagnostic computer, GT-1, Software Service Station, BMW Tech Info Systems, and BMW Electronic Parts Catalog (same ones at the dealership). They are very knowledgeable and experienced with BMWs. I've had a good experience with them, and recommend them to others who have quirky issues with their car.

I even use them to trouble shoot some things that a BMW dealer couldn't figure out. After going to them, isolating the issue, and taking it back to the BMW Dealer, viola. Problem solved.
