Issue with dealer and FBO

I am going to be bringing in my 135i to the dealer for some service and possible trans replacement, does anyone have any experience with brining a FBO car to dealership? should I MHD to stage 0 and turn off JB4? and will they give me a hard time about it?

If the dealer doesn't want to replace the trans (or wants you to pay) they will point to any one of your mods and say "this stressed the transmission too much, can't cover".

As a separate issue, remove JB4 entirely since from your mod list it is only making your car more shitty.
