Need to Replace Battery in 08 X3

I need info on replacing battery in my 2008 x3. Current battery came from Advance store. It is Autocraft Gold, cold crank 770. My question is this, Can Advance change out battery, and not loose my codes? They state they have tool to prevent loss when installing new battery. The store is in Sneeds Ferry, NC. However, I tried to get it replaced at my home in Tennessee, and was told that their Management told them they could not do it there any more because of customer complaining about code loss after installing.
What should I do? Hate to Go to BMW shop to purchase a battery, but don't want to create more problems.
Reponses would be appreciated,
Abailaway

As info, I just had my battery replaced at Advance Auto, they did very good job as far as I can tell. To my knowledge, did not lose any programs. Battery was $133 US. Dealer wanted $160 to $300. Hopefully all is well......!
