Default Is this a problematic ABS Sensor?

So I exit the motorway and sweep to the left and brake at the roundabout. Get a judder from the brake pedal that feels like the ABS kicking in. Conditions are dry.

If there is no ABS light would normally be warped discs

Wouldn't that show itself in straight line braking?

It did it again the other day. Same conditions

If it's a failed ABS sensor you will get a multitude of warning signs on the idrive screen. Unless you've got that it won't be a sensor. Not sure if it's a pump problem. Are you getting any info on the screen indicating a fault?

I've experienced a similar situation prior to an ABS sensor dying.

Continued intermittently between the dash finally lighting up and me getting it in for repair.

Sounds like a failing wheel speed sensor to me.
