Just bought a 03' BMW 325i w/ SP and i've noticed something odd a couple of days into driving it... the car, as it shifts down to stop, there is a soft muffled thump (very soft jerked motion). The best way to describe it is if you have somewhat of a heavy box in the trunk and it shifts and bumps the back of the seat when you slow down... (i checked the stupid stuff like if there was actually something in the trunk or if the spare/lift was loose). It happens intermittently but more often than not. I don't feel it if I brake very slowly or if I brake quickly, only at a gradual stop. Driven the car at moderate speeds max at 70mph and very gradual acceleration to break it in.

Any ideas/suggestions?

Thanks
