I DRIVE A 318IS 5 SPD MANUAL, RECENTLY WHEN EVER I ATTEMPT TO HIT THE BRAKES AT A FAST SPEED OR EVEN A SLOW SPPEN MY STEERING WILL SHAKES LIKE RATTLES. ID BE LOOKING AT MY HAND AND ITS LIKE A VIBRATOR...ANYONE KNOW WHAT THIS COULD BE?? BRAKES??
everyone always says brake rotors but i went in and got my alignment fixed, and my shakes from 60 to dead stop or higher speeds went completely away my 318 had the sameprobelm. like annoying pretty hard shake! i even got it on the accelration too that sucked! alignment fixed my problem!
...just a strange thought... maybe you should undo all the lugs on each rim, and re-torque them down in accordance with the correct bolt-pattern-tightening-sequence. maybe you have a loose lug. ...just ah thought, and wouldnt cost a dime.

mine does it as well, however, from what I can tell the alignment on mine is good. I can drive in a straight line with out touching the steering wheel. However, it's not a bad shake, as long as my hands on the wheel it really doesn't cause problems. And a warped rotar is a very common cause for the wheel to shake while braking. Plus, telling if your rotar is warped is something you can do your self too.
