Brake rotors are "out of round" best thing is get them machined at a brake shop,they are fairly cheap to replace but new ones will do the same thing soon.

This due to warped brake rotors. One good indication is the violent shaking of the steering wheel ONLY when appling the brake pedal. Replace the brake rotors. They are very easy to replace so let me know if you need instructons to do so.

Above 45 mph braking causes a steering wheel vibe/shimmy but no pulling. cars is 2006 3 with 58K miles

you need to have the rotors re-surfaced or replaced. the vibration/shimmy is caused by warped rotors

Front End Shimmy - not a brake problem (rotors)

Time for a front end check, like idler arms, steering links etc for too much play.
