Chromes on LT's

Hi all
I drive a 2006 K1200LT with the following issues

The side chromes on both sides of the bike are peeling off as a result heat exiting from the radiator ports. I have taken this up with my BMW dealership and they have replaced them on 2 occasions only to find that the same problem has arisen again. I have no joy with customer relation to upgrades.
Has any one else had this problem and how was it rectified.

Yes, I have replaced 3 of these. My '05 LT is way out of warranty. They have been peeling for the last 2 years or so and I had them replaced just a few weeks ago at a recent service.

2 more are peeling and will have to be replaced when I can no longer stand to look at them.
