I have to reset everything every time I start up. Snr. tech at Bev Hills BMW said they just didn't put the code in the current software, even though every M3 off the line does it just fine.

Is there a hack?

Most of it is stored in shortterm memory and will be lost when the car goes into sleep mode. For instance the setting of the active seats remain after a short shutdown for refuelling or something. If the car is off for 16 or more minutes (depends on the system) then these settings will be lost. You could use the M-Button to overcome this, but then you have to push buttons when you want to M then car unless M is all you need.

FWIW, my car remembers the suspension and transmission setting. Hpwever, for the transmission I have to hit twice to the right for manual mode but the S-setting is remembered.
