    40 mile drive in the 170 started with what felt like a buckled alloy , wobbled like mad , couple of presses of the brake pedal and it went back to normal, very strange

    Maybe a small stone/debris on the pad, or dried mud on the rim which eventually fell off at speed.

    E350 CDi Blue Efficiency Sport Coupe, fast, smooth, comfortable, what more does one need?

    Check the wheel nuts are tight to torque setting, pronto!

    If they are loose you have been very lucky driving 40 miles.

    I’d check the wheels and nuts as per above but it will most likely be a stone or mud
