Hi, I had the exact same problems on my 07 Spider (also Alfa Red). It was agreed that the problem was abnormal and after speaking to people who 'know about paint' they said it had almost certainly been 'over-baked' during production and was a fault during the manufacturing process.
I never pursued the process to the end as I handed the particular car back to Alfa for other mechanical defects, but keep at them - its an issue they should fix!
Heres some pics of mine:
