Default A8L brake recall???

ive own two a8l's, both have had the brake wobble when applying the brakes... both the front driver side rotor. so im wondering since the wear is so inconsistent(all other rotors no where near being warped) is there a known issue? or could it be:
1.dont think its >> coincidence, just my driving pattern, which I doubt because I bought one with the issue)
2. coincidence, average driver makes a lot of right turns while braking, which I surmise would put more wear on that side
3 the abs system or ESC has a error/flaw, pulses that rotor more often or harder then the others?
4.the brake esc box is near that wheel? but the fluid's not compressible so that shouldn't affect it? maybe since more distance = more places for air to get in?? bad connections? do a8l have baby brakes that need to be bled more often?
any thoughts?
