Windshield Chip on Leased X1

I have a 2014 X1 and have another year left on my lease.

Yesterday got a small windshield chip (in the wiper zone) wile driving on the freeway. Its smaller than a quarter and I got to know that its patchable. Although patched, I read a lot of posts that claim that BMW charges like $600 when you return the car if there's a chip in the wiper area (even if it has been patched).

Luckily I have the BMW LEASE PROTECTION PLAN which I read and found it covers Windshield Chips. I'm guessing I still need to patch my chip or else its going to get bigger (pls confirm this part)

My bigger question is whether to use a 3rd party or have BMW patch it? 3rd party is $75 to patch, not sure how much BMW charges. I'm concerned if I use 3rd party, BMW will make issues that I used external vendor and void my lease protection plan. Is this true or can I use 3rd party?
