    You car will have ABS as standard, if your peddle shudders when you slam on the brakes it means your abs is kicking in. Aslong as you dont have any warning lights or messages, it should be working fine.

    I thought all the warning lights in the speedo pod were LEDs soldered to the PCB?

    That aside, OP - go find some grass or gravel and have a play with your brakes to see if the ABS is or isn't really working.

    They are all LED's, I think he's said the ABS light comes on when he starts the car, but then goes out as it should?

    Yu do have to hammer the brakes to get the ABS to kick in when it's dry. Try in the wet but in a safe way.
