    just check the general condition of the pipe numbered 5 here...should have no cracks or wrinkles
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    Update :

    Just tried the same on my brothers E39 and his pedal sinks the same as mine. So I assume this is completely normal.

    i've done this with the engine off and experienced this same stiffening of the pedal...but once the engine was started the pedal gained its 'give' back...always assumed it was the vacuum assistance at work in the servo...weird.

    Might be a shot in the dark but check that your caliper guide bolts have been tightened up properly.

    My vote is that the brake fluid has not been bled properly when the brake pipes have been replaced....

    I'm guessing DSC system has got air in it. Best way to resolve this is to hook it up to a DIS system and let it sort the air lock out.
