Vibration under braking Z3

Hi. We have just got our first Z3 and we love it. We have a few teething issues which we are getting through, but one eludes us. We have a slight steering vibration at about 35 mph and also more severe under braking. We have had the wheels balanced and can't figure it out. Has anyone experienced anything similar

Ok, I would go for :

1. Sticky caliper

2. A warped disc

more to be 1.

Thats all I can think of at 35 mph.

Vibration when braking

Just bought a 98 Z3.
It has a slight vibraion when first applying brakes at 50 - 60 mph.
Where should I start to repair this problem?
Thanks in advance.

^I would go for either warped disc or you have wear in the suspension.
