I don't notice it much when first applying the  rear brake at higher speeds, 
but the slower I go, the more pulsing I feel. It's  time for a replacement.

The  rotor part number is 34 51 2 332 581 The BMW parts CD lists the same 
part number  for:

I would  strongly recommend that you get a NEW rotor. They are $294.00 at BMW 
list price.  There are 18 available in the USA at this time. 
Be sure to replace the pads at the same time. I do NOT recommend any  
aftermarket pads for the rear brake, as I find that they seem to wear the rotor  more 
rapidly than the OEM pads.
