on my 325i ive noticed my car pulls to the side when coming to a stop like on a traffic light. It only pulls when under light/moderate braking and only happens at low speeds , below 20.
My rotor, calipers and pads are brand new, the whole system has been bled twice recently, and i have no abs lights on. Ive alsready checked wires and plugs from sesnors all seems good.
When i tested the abs, by stonping the brakes until the car stops, the abs work fine, does not pull or anything.

I am wondering is someone outthere can give me some ideas on waht to do:/

Does someone knows how i can activate the abs pump to open the valves so when i bleed the brakes i will be sure all fluid is being pumped out of the abs pump;;;;

plase this is bothering me and driving me nuts and the the car sideways;;

let me know please......!!!

The last time this happed to me, I pulled the guide bolts (sliders) cleaned them up and then lubed them with Moly Lube and that did the trick.

When was the last time you aligned you suspension all together? Have you recently done suspension work?

This sounds like "TIRES".
Check and Adjust tire pressure on ALL 4 TIRES.
Also check for tread wear and replace worn TIRES if needed.

Yeah, what Delmarco said, as well as check your rims for deformations (it might be slightly bended and it couse the problem you have).

All four tires are brand new, less than 15k on them, and tire pressure is also chekked every week on all four corners. so i knows this is right.

my rims are sligtly out of round, very little though, i did not think this little would be enought to cause this problem,,

any other ideas let me know please.
thank you all.

I had my rims a little bended as well (2 of them), and my problem was gone after i replaced all of them (i could've just repair it in shop but decided to move on with new style)
