Battery issues

My local BMW dealer is refusing to warranty a new battery for me due to driving habits. They say I have to many 3 mile trips which doesnt allow the battery to charge.

This is my second M3 (currently an 09 E90) and formerly I had an 08 E90 in which I drove the same exact way/distance for over 60,000 miles with 0 battery issues.

I called BMW NA and they said they can't do anything and have to trust the dealers decision.

Do I have any options here other than buying an expensive ass battery, or getting a different car since evidently I can't drive the M3 properly?
