Brakes slip when braking slowly and turning tight.
 
Hi I drive a 328i sedan 1999
And my brakes seem to slip ( or it feels that way) only when I am doing a tight turn driving slow to a stop (like parking for example).

It feels like my pedal pumps very rapidly like I can feel what's going on at the wheels .
I haven't had the car for to long and it has always done it.

Also the pads squeal a little bit sometimes
What could be the cause of this ?

The "slipping" might be a malfunctioning ABS unit or bad wheel speed sensors or some other piece of equipment tied to the ABS unit. As for the squeaking, you might need new pads, rotors or both.

I'd take it to a shop and have them see whether there are any codes.

Wow sounds expensive

Although the car does brake excellent. Above excellent
It's only in that example that I gave you that it slips.

Thanks alot for your help

Well I've had the car for about 7 months got it with 103k and it now just broke 111k
I have been doing regular maintenance. I have done a cooling system overhaul.
Have done nothing with the brakes.
I was going to buy new rotors and pads from either ECStunning.com or bimmian.com
And in January going to change spark plugs coilpacks and wires.
How can I be sure it's a ABS malfunction . And how is it fixed ?
