Did you check caliper moves freely on its pins. Other option try swapping wheels around. I have had vibration when braking before when my tyres were worn.

Were the wheel nuts torque loaded to the correct figure? Are there any balance weights missing from the rims? Any recent curbing? When do you get the vibration/wobble? Is it during braking?

Mostly under braking thought it was a warped disc but still there after replacing discs and pads

Personally I check the run out if I suspect a 'warped' disk but I guess not everyone has DI.

Check for dirt or grease between the hub flange and the disk and make sure you wire brush any rust off the flange before putting the disk back on. Just a tiny bit of grit or blob of copperslip from a wheel nut can make the disk run out enough to cause vibration.

If everything is spotlessly clean and it still vibrates (and you had the wheels/tyres balanced as already suggested) you need to check the flange run out and wheel bearings.

So far I've only looked at the front disks on my 307, do the rears have the bearings in the disk or something? If so and it is a rear problem you will need to think about where the misalignment could be.

i've had a pulsing under braking which turned out to be rear discs even though I'd measured a 20 thou run out on the front discs.

Rear disc brakes on 307's can also have issues with sticking/jammed pads which can cause vibration when braking as often only one pad moves which result in the disc being pushed out of true
