Steering wheel shake

My wheel has been shaking under light braking. The more I compress my pedal the Less it shakes. I am thinking its rotor warp. What are good sporty type of rotors? And pads? 2006 325i sport sedan manual trans. Thank you in advance.

Zimmermann rotors and Hawk HPS pads, or OEM pads.

HPS are quite popular and have good reviews on here, If you want a low dust alternative I'd say go with Akebono, if you want performace more than go with the Hawks

I had the exact same problem but it wasn't due to rotor warp. My thrust bushing was the cause of the shake. After replacing the bushings, it was all fine and dandy

+1! That is classic thrust rods/arms. The inner bushing is worn. This would be a good time to upgrade to Meiyle HD or M3 units.
