Posted by Bill on October 04, 1999 at 15:50:15:

I own a '99/328i and I have noticed a vibration in the steering wheel during braking, since I bought the car in May.

I brought it in to the dealer who replaced pads and rotors (free of charge) but offered a diturbing explanation, that I must have warped the rotors by driving my car around town to much. (thus over heating the breaks!)

My car has has been driven normaly with a balanced combination of city and hi-way, and it only has 3k miles on it.

I can't believe that I could have warped the rotors by driving the car around town too much? Especially with such low milage! (Not to mention that I noticed the vibration with in the first couple of weeks!)

What's up with the dealers explation?

Has anyone had a similar problems?
