Take the wheels off and take some pics of the rotors. The new ones and the old ones look different, but you have to take the wheels off. Refer to these links:

I've got the fix bro and brake dust is no issue. Your dealer is high crack go to a different one ASAP. Do you have judder? If not I wonder if they put on some low dollar pads or something. Is it front and rear?

Here's my conversation with the dealer.

I'm having problems with the brakes. They feel funny and are dusty.
(they were dusty)
Did you have this problem before?
No
Did we try fixing it before?
No
OK, we'll replace them with new parts.
Complain a little louder next time. They feel wobbly and I can't take it anymore. I think they may be dangerous. ;)
No, they don't check if you've been to other dealers. They don't even check to see if you've been there.
