6 series warped brake discs - BMW say its my alloys?

I have just had to pay 550 (again) for my third set of from discs/pads in less than 7000 miles. The BMW dealer replaced my first new set under warranty as they became warped at 4000 miles. the second set did the same at a further 3000 miles - but because they had already been replaced under warranty BMW (rightly so) decided to investigate further. The outcome was that they say they have data which suggests that if your alloys are repainted it creates disc warping!!! I had mine done by a BMW dealer at 100 eack (acid dipped, any cracks welded, re-spun, painted etc and in their words "better than when they left the factory) - how unfair is that?
Anyone had a similar issue?
