    Just purchased an '06 550i with 78k. A brake shimmer generally between 20 & 60 mph. Is this a simple as replacing the rotors?

    Any idea when the rotors where last replaced?
    Could be brake pad deposits on the rotors as well.
    Sometimes a few good stomps on the brakes clean it up.
    Be sure to check your mirrors!

    I had that too. New rotors did the trick.

    Well if you you do change the rotors, I'd suggest brake fluid and pads at the same time.
