brake pedal and windshield wipers..

hello everyone, i had this on my friends E90 and now i have it on the E93, when you turn on the wipers and have your foot on the brake, you feel everything that the wipers are doing.. is this normal? and is there anyway to fix it? seems like an annoying thing for a quality car...

thanks in advance
S

Try putting your foot on the brake instead of the break and see if it helps.

Never noticed. Come to think of it, my car is 1 year old today and I've never had to turn on the wipers yet. I better try them tomorrow to make sure they work.
