Angry 2008 BMW M3 E90 Paint Issues

About a year ago my paint started getting cloudy looking on the roof. I always garage my car and at my work we have a covered garage and I use it (even though it is a 5 block walk). I keep the car clean and always waxed and yet the paint just keeps getting worse. About 6 months ago I took it to a few shops and they are telling me I will have to repaint the entire car and showed me that the cloudiness is the clear coat. Now after a year of seeing this the whole car looks cloudy white. At first I thought this was only my car but I have now seen in my are 5 other BMW Series 3 cars with this issue all 2007, 2008 or 2009.

I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico if anyone knows of someone in this area that does good paint. Fingers Crossed there was a recall??

Questions:
Does anyone know if there are recalls for paint?
Where is the best place to get it repainted in the USA?

comments, suggestions.

Thanks, -WS

** note could not figure out how to edit **

Last line should be: At first I thought this was only my car but lately I have seen 5 other BMW Series 3 cars with this issue all 2007, 2008 or 2009.
