I'm inclined to think that yours is also due to uneven pad transfer. It's not something you can easily see. I'm fairly certain that most pads would overheat way before the OEM discs go beyond its maximum operating temperature. Also, once a disc is truly warped - not with axial runout due to pad deposits - it'll never recover, so by the fact that it gets better as you manage the brakes before the next session, points more towards uneven pad transfer.
May I ask if you are using the BMW M Sport pads with the stock rotors? Or do the rotors need to be changed as well?
