The only time I've ever warped rotors was in a 1973 Mustang, in 1973.
Drove it REALLY hard, and braked the crap out of it, warped the front rotors badly.
Had a Volvo that ate front rotors. But that was a Volvo issue, not driver error.
Suspect a combination of errors here. But, given that they've warped multiple times, I think I'd run it to another shop and get a 2nd opinion.
Also I'd swap in new pads. Pagid are good OEM pads, so go with them.
I don't know what's stock on an E320, but I'd consider swapping in vented and/or slotted rotors to help dissipate heat. I've had Brembo and Stoptech on a couple cars and both worked well without warping. I had stoptech slotted and drilled rotors on a car I tracked and never had an issue.
