I have the same issue, front disks and pads were replaced a couple of weeks ago so hope that is not the issue. When I get the chance, i'll take it back to the garage to see what they say, hopefully something simple (and covered under their warranty!), she's only 2 weeks old!

OK, that's good, uppers cured my wobble, now all is smooth, so that means lowers are ok (hopefully)

Still need a new arb though

It will be the brake discs. Very common on all cars to get wobble under braking, especially as the discs thin with age and use. They wobble when they heat when braking from speed, or braking hard.
