Mein Auto: 2006 Z4 3.0si roadster
E85 Z4 3.0si brake pedal vibration after rotors & pads replaced

I just replaced my rotors and pads on my E85 Z4 3.0si roadster. I used centric cross drilled rotors all around and cool carbon pads. I'm now getting a vibration through the brake pedal while braking above 70mph. After the car slows below 70 the vibration stops. There is no vibration through the steering wheel and it makes a noticeable noise in the cabin of the car when the vibration is happening. I've bedded the brakes twice now which did not resolve the issue.

Looks like someone who installed the same equipment on an e90 (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=543561) had the same issues, but I don't see any resolutions posted.

I had the front control arm bushing replaced on the car today and the issue seems better, but is definitely still there. Any thoughts??
