It was on a lift at Subaru specialist who checked the brakes, but perhaps missed something. Compared to my 9-5, the brakes look brand new. If your BMW is more of a bouncing than a shake, that can be bushings. When I say vibration, the steering wheel also shakes in comparison to just the bounce you seem to be describing.
This EBC link (https://ebcbrakes.com/articles/steering-wheel-vibration/) suggests that without using an on car brake lathe, some cars will never brake smoothly. I wonder if Subarus are more prone to this (more than one in seven cars) as some Subaru owners have replaced nearly everything (even steering racks) trying to eliminate this type of braking vibration issue. In comparison, it seems rare to hear about this type of issue on the 9-5.
I agree it might not be the brakes, but I don't see how to find another culprit and pad deposits seems very plausible.
