Brake Pedal wiggle

I've noticed that my brake pedal has a wiggle....it seems to have a lot of side-to-side movement. My Acura's and Benz's pedals are rock solid and have no side-to-side movement.

An one else come across this? I have less than 920 miles and no hard driving or braking.

Hadn't noticed this myself, but yes it does wiggle in my car too. Well, makes it easier to heel and toe, that's my excuse.

Re:

I took my car back to the dealer with this issue and the response was "all bmw autos are like that sir and it's within tolerance"

I also have water between the insulation under the bonnet and the bonnet (hood for those in the USA). It seems to be getting in past the washer jets. Dealer couldn't find the problem blaming it on condensation.

If you have the sDrive 35i (like me), why would you need to heel and toe? That only helps if there's a clutch keeping your left foot busy. I brake with my left foot.

Per the topic, I haven't felt any wiggle.

Brake pedal is much smaller in manual z4, no wiggle found.
