Question about BMW 535
I have a 92 BMW 525i that made a thud noise when I tapped the brakes quickly and let off. Did it at any speed. Replaced the upper control arms, also known as thrust arms at AZ... about $120 each. Fixed the thud issue. Wasn't complicated. The RS ball joint was bad and both bushings were bad. Gotta replace both arms at the same time.

I would suspect somewhere in your front end you have a compliance bushing with excessive movement. these cars front ends depend heavily on these style bushings, and as they wear you can start to see tire wear patterns, looseness in steering, and high speed vibration. make sure you have the front end inspected by a shop that is familier with these types of cars. good luck!
