I have a BMW 3 series..318SE..03 reg..problems Im having

I have a BMW 3 series..318SE..problems Im having is that when at speeds over 50 or 60mph..the steering wheel wobbles..and then when ur doing about 70mph...as soon as you touch the brakes,,the steering goes all over the place..and i dont feel any vibration through the brake pedal.I have changed the front discs and pads..and also the wishbone bushes..still do difference.Even on normal driving..when I drive over an imperfection in the road..rather than the car to absorb it..feels like its very sloppy..please help:)

    I`ve had 7 Bmw`s and 5 of them had the same problem. It was usually front bushes, but also check the rear ones. The stabilizers may be snapped as well due to excessive vibration. One of my cars had front wheels like an egg as they were kerbed from the inside, so it could be wheel balance as well or a broken wheel bearing (you should hear the noise though). Last thing I can think of is your tyres. Get them checked even if they look new!

Per your description, I would take a look at your suspension components, tie-rod ends, steering rack mounts, ball joints and wheel bearings.
After the "wish bone" busings were replaced, was the car re-aligned? If the toe-in is not correct, it can cause the condition you describe.
Be very carful driving until you root cause the problem as you could easily loose control of the vehicle from a steering component failure.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,
