Question iDrive out and looking for a recommendations for a tech in Houston, TX

Having serious problems with iDrive… it has shut off and wont come back up. I've researched a lot in various forums and its time to find the source of the issue.

I'm wanting to get a thorough diagnostic/testing done on my 2007 BMW 550i's electronics, in-particular the iDrive system. I prefer getting a referral for someone here in Houston, TX, so if anyone has any recommendations please let me know. Worst case, I'd go to dealership (if thats my only option) but I'm worried they will just overlook any real in-depth tests and give me an estimate to change out the whole system instead of really finding the culprit, if in fact its one of the components and not everything. I'm on a budget so I'm trying to find the best cost effective way to approach this.

Does anyone have any recommendations/referral to a BMW technician here in Houston Texas that I can pay to run some tests at a good price?
