I have to strongly agree with others here that the situation might well be your driving habits.

As others pointed out the rotors are steel and precision machined. Break Pads are soft so what the dealer refers to as wrapping can only evolve if you "ride your brakes hard" Keep in mind the breaks when used will get very hot this heat over time will cause break rotors to not only wear also to distort. This then will cause the break pads to wear prematurely.

I make good use of downshifting and anticipating upcomming stops ahead of me. No matter if you have a manual or DCT you need to have a serious look at your breaking habits.

Just my friendly 2 cents.

PS. If you use your downshifts to assist you in breaking, you might even discover some very exciting exhaust notes you may never heard before
