Brakes feel strange
I have had my 128i for about 3 weeks now, I love the way the car drives and handles. The one issue I have with it are the brakes. They feel fine at speed but when the car slows to about 10 mph the brakes feel like the rotors ars slightly warped. Is this a normal problem with these cars ? The car is a 2011 with 19 k miles.

All four rotors on my 135 had to be replaced in under 5,000 miles because they were warped.

Brakes are a weak link on the 135.

Do you get a pulsating vibration when you brake?

Yes, exactly.

The pulsations got more intense with more spirited driving, but would subside as the brakes cooled down.

Got to the point it was downright scary.
