Definatly sounds like the rotors, but you can get new rotors pretty cheap on the internet, and they are not too hard to install.

If it only happens with medium pressure on the brake pedals, I can almost guarantee that it's your thrust arm bushings and not rotors. If it shakes when you're braking hard and just barely touching the pedal, then yes, it's rotors.

Just sayin'. Read up on it; shakes around 50-60mph and under light to medium force braking are typical of thrust arm bushings on e34s.
