My Ride: 2005 BMW 330 CI
Steering wheel twitch

I have a 2005 330 ci and when I stab the break pedal I get a twitch left to right in the steering wheel. I hear a clunk as well, it seems to be at its worst between 20 mph and 50 mph. I don't need to stab the brakes hard just a quik stab and the wheel twitches. It is not violent at all but is noticeable. I was wondering if anyone had an issue like this with there E46?

Mine does that too. It's the front bushings.
