1) brakes need cleaning (more braking on one side than other, could be surface rust on disks if it's been sitting)
2) warped brake rotors, but usually they'd "pulse" with the warping
3) most probably it the thrust arm bushings are going - there are no bearing s in the front suspension, just very heavy rubber bushings - these perish, then the steering geometry changes as the braking forces move the whole wheel/strut out of line (slightly, then gets worse). Very fixable, shandard maintenance.
4) could also be worn shocks in combination with (3).
I am planning to buy a used E32 735 BMW but when I drove it, I noticed that on application of brakes on top speed the car gets a bit uncontrollable and tends towards one side of the road. What do I do?????
