Do you get this all the time?
Or just in certain conditions - heavy breaking, in the wet etc..

could be warpped discs if ABS light in not coming on. (does the car kind of pulse when breaking?)

Could it be the abs reluctor rings , just like mine ?
I have a faint clicking noise when driving at slower speeds (not very often I must admit)

To clarify, the warning light doesn't come on to show that the ABS is cutting in.If it comes on when driving then it is indicating a fault in the ABS which is then disabled. If the braking is then fine, then that suggests that the judder is indeed the ABS coming on when it shouldn't.

A cracked reluctor ring would cause this at low speed but it wouldn't bring on the warning light. This indicates a possible electrical fault such as a dodgy wire to one of the wheel sensors.

If the warning light comes on when you start the car and then goes off normally then the system has passed the self-check which means the fault is intermittent.
