A friend of mine in Seattle has a 200Q with the internal caliper brakes.
When he feels the slight jiggle when braking, he finds a long, straight
stretch of road and does a few quick 80+ mph to zero very hard stops. This
"straightens" the problem right out.
I did the same this past weekend with my TQC when I was out at PIR with the
Alfa group. The rotors had a bad "jiggle" (fairly new rotors, too). A few
120+ mph to 50 mph hard braking moves and poof, no more jiggle.
