Wastegate Warranty Service - What Dealership/SA?

Pretty sure my car will qualify for new turbo/turbos under the extended wastegate warranty so I am starting to try to figure out which dealership to take the car to. I don't have a previous relationship with any dealership in the area other than getting the battery cable recall done at Towson BMW last month.

I live in Frederick and work in Cockeysville so I could go to Rockville, Tisher, Sterling, Russell, or Towson pretty easily. Has anyone had this warranty work done at any of these dealerships and had a good experience? From what I have heard each dealership typical handles it differently.

Thanks in advance.

This is concerning the extended wastegate warranty and not cpo or new car warranty. No one has had their turbos replaced under the extended warranty?

Not really. No one seems to have any experience with the Maryland dealerships or at least none they want to share as far as this issue is concerned.
