The brakes do not work smoothly, very often stopping is jumpy, and when starting after the car was stopped, it will jump forward, it is not possible to ease off the brake, most times it seems all or nothing. This problem is most prevalent when the outside temperature is above 80 Fahrenheit, which is most of the time in dallas. The dealer has seen the vehicle 4 times about this problem, and I have been told the following reasons: A- you need to get about 500 miles on the car, B- the rotors are soft, C- the discs are soft, the rotors are hard and the discs are soft, and E- this is the way the brakes on this model operate. I find it hard to believe on a car of this price they have brakes like this. Today I returned a loaner car, a 2007 528I to the dealer and the brakes worked perfectly. If my vehicle has this problem, and I sure that other vehicles have this problem it is a major safety issue. There have been no total failures or damage, but I believe it is just a matter of time. But the dealer assured me the vehicle is free from defects and is safe to drive.
