Don't know if this is the same as your problem but it sounds very similar. Do you find the steering wheel shakes viscously through that speed zone when braking?
I have the same problem with my 540. Some people have suggested as the engine is so heavy that it could be the lower control arm bushes, they tend to wear rather quickly on my car (apparantly). I have had other issues with the cars reliability until recently so have not looked into getting this resolved, however I have been told you can put upgraded bushes in place which should wear better and last longer.
Let me know how you get on and I will report back when I get mine changed (sooner rather than later I hope)
All the best
