I reccomend you get the front bushings checked, with my Blk 540i I had both warped rotors & bad bushings... Imagine my face going down a mountain with the shaking from the steeringwheel!
Changed the rotors/pads, good improvement, but still shaky..Changed the bushings, shaking was gone.
Same thing with my 03' right now, I shake sometimes, but the rotors are good, even my tech noted the bushings are nearing the end of their life.
Though i'm not 100% sure i can relate an E39 problem to the E60, but the concept may be the same.
