If you recently has your brakes services, you may want to make sure that your brake lines were properly bled. Air in the line can cause some funky feelings.

Check your thrust arm bushings

That might be a good call. Basically any of the bushing in the steering arm could also cause this too.

I will agree with larchmerelmports that you need to check your thrust arm bushings, on e60 they are hydro bushings meaning they are filled with oil. Over time the rubber will crack open and leak the fluid. As you stop you can actually feel the chassis stop but the body of the car will keep moving forward. Hope it helps
