Which flash tune?

So, I recently bought a 2017 m240i coupe (pics to come soon in a WIP "check me out" thread). This is my first BMW and I LOVE it. Ever since I bought it, my free time has been spent researching and reading countless posts on this forum about different modifications, owner experiences, etc. During this process, I came across piggyback tunes, which I don't want to do, and the flash tunes. After reading, I found that there are 3 current flashes (available/available soon) that interest me a lot. Since I'm new to this, I am wondering what are the general thoughts on MG, BM3, and MHD as far as quality, service, and reputation go. I know there are other flashes such as Mission, which I will have do my transmission tune, but I like the ability to change my tune at a whim, should I desire to.

Yeah Iím confused. I thought flash tunes for B58 are around the corner, but not released. Doesnít look like BM3 has one for B48.

The ones I listed are released (MG) or releasing soon (BM3, MHD). The latter two are in closed beta. I'm mostly trying to see if there is any major difference from these companies tunes in the past, or if it's more or less the same between them so I can decide if it's worth waiting for a specific one. For example, was reading about experiences on the different forums here on bimmerpost and see that the support for MG and BM3 has been really good for these new tunes.

I emailed a rep at the beginning of the month who said possibly a month out.
