Re: Integral ABS brakes diagram
I too was wanting to see the full details a while back. I went to the "ATZ Worldwide" website, you need to pay to get the full article. As an aside, I have the factory test documentation for the pre-delivery braking system checks on my '05 (all in German). I might ask someone at my workplace to translate it. Plenty of people have asked why BMW have elected to use such an intricate iABS system, but when the tech article is digested you can see they have attempted to control the wheels to that critical point between locking and not being locked, unlike car ABS systems which actually lock and release the wheels, hence the complexity of the control system (and the braking modulator).
