Help with a weird problem

I'm not sure where to post this but here goes. I have a 2007 335i sedan. When the car comes to a complete stop, I can turn the wheel with no problems. However when the car is barely moving (maybe 1mph) I'm getting heavy vibration in the steering wheel. It feels like something is up with the power steering. Does anyone know anything about this?

The vibration goes away as soon as the car gets to 2-3 mph and from that point on, everything is good. It is also good to go when the car is sitting still.

Any help will be appreciated guys. Thanks.

I sure did. The lvl is around the top ring on the dip stick. The fluid is a gray color.

Gray? Could be trouble, can you please remove some with a turkey baster and squeeze it into a clean clear glass container and snap a pic?

On the top of your power steering cap does it say 11s?
