If you could find a brand new wheel that has never had a tyre mounted nor ever been put on an axle but was out of the 0.3mm tolerance it would probably go far in disputing BMW's contention that the issue is related to impact. Further, if you then could take those specimens to a metalurgical lab and have them x-rayed or otherwise examined internally and could discern flaws, BMW's case should crack just as surely as have the wheels. It would only take a single rim.
