Sorry to jack this thread, but this comment sounds somewhat like the "issue" that I am having. I have a 2006 400h if that matters. When I hit the brakes I feel the regenerative braking happen and it always seems to "pull" the car to the left. I'm not sure if when the car starts to "pull" that it is the regen or the friction brakes doing this. But is this normal? I don't like feeling like I'm not in control of the car.
Second, (not sure at what speeds, but seems to happen moreso when I'm going faster or accelerating like you mentioned above) when I hit the brakes there is a very noticeable stutter when what feels like going from regen to friction where it seemingly losses braking friction or grabbing power. Not sure what this is, but it is only for a split second. But split seconds matter when you are driving and trying to stop.
