Shaking when breaking resolved

Just thought I'd post this to maybe help someone else. My '04 e60 would shake pretty bad when breaking between 25-35 mph. I could really feel the vibration in the break pedal as well! I had the rotors turned at O'Reilly and everything is back to normal!

You probably could have just rebedded your brakes and avoided the cost of the resurfacing.

Rebedded, how is that done? The cost to turn them was $10 a rotor.
