I was looking at an exceptionally clean 325eS when I was getting my baby and it had a similar noise in the rear. well I say similar because it was in the rear under similar circumstances. My friends dad said he was almost positive it was a wheel bearing going bad. I don't know if that applys to you, do you have LSD? if its from the back it might be your LSD clunking around. If you have one... @_@ Just some thoughts.
Braking and turning? I'd say it probally is an LSD, seing as how you say you have iS - likely chance of having one, albiet stock more than likely. :P
some e30s have a lsd. Fortunately for me I had a stock 4.10 LSD in mine and i had the same thing all it was is the differential oil getting bad. I recommend to get ROYAL PURPLE SYNTHETIC GEAR OIL my mechanic that race preps and repairs all of his e30 cars including the e30 m3 swears by the stuff.
