Do you think I have any recourse with getting it replaced under warranty? I mean, it doesn't appear to be a result of hitting a pothole or anything like that.
I agree. This won't be covered under warranty unless you purchased the tire/wheel warranty (even then it might be a push as they typically say things like "unless the wheel is damaged enough to keep the tire from holding air").

If you need a new wheel, give the guys at getbmwparts a call. I picked up a front comp pack wheel to use as a spare for $489 (free shipping) during their recent sale. It might be over, but I think that they usually sell them for around $520.
