ABS and VDC Failure with the crunching sound! (Alfa 147 Selespeed)

Hi All,

I've searched for ABS and VDC Failures, but I seem to get a slightly different problem - actual failure!

I'll be slowing down to say a roundabout and the selespeed would be changing down gears - if the revs would spike up and i'd brake, sometimes it would have a major ABS attack and make that typical grounding noise. Additionally, on the way back tonight, it had the VDC failure as well - where I had to turn my car off and restart it. Thankfully I'm still in warranty, but unsure if it's a good idea to drive 20 miles down the motorway with this sort of problem to the dealer.

Anyone else had a similar grinding issue? I had the brake calipers replaced in November.
