I was looking for a while on-line for an image of an Audi instrument 
cluster with the lights lit up, when it dawned on me that I could grab my 
camera and just take a picture myself... The picture is attached 
(AudiLights.jpg). It probably won't make it to the list, but Clive should 
get it himself. The ABS light is the one where it says "ANTILOCK OFF".

Normally, I also get the overtemp light (above the oil pressure light) to 
come on when I turn the key. But it turned off before I took the picture.

It should kick back a bit when the ABS engages. If you drive on a normal 
paved road and stomp hard on the brakes, you should be able to make the ABS 
engage. But I've had it happen driving 20 mph in snow as well...

I've never felt the tap on the brakes at 5mph like Elliott describes.
