Then you need to go to a different dealer (i suggest you go back to the dealer you bought the car off, as dealers are a lot more helpful with warranty/servicing etc if you have bought the car off them) and play dumb, don't mention anything about JB4's or having work refused elsewhere etc etc and hope they fix the gearbox issue for you.
I'm sure I've read that once a code is thrown indicating the car might be chipped BMW keeps a record of it on their system.

I suppose the only other possibility is to ask BMW when/date they thought the car was chipped, if that date is prior to the OP taking ownership than its clear the dealer was at fault for selling it as an AUC car....
