Ticking noises? You're sure it's not just the ABS sound?

hahaha I think the color of your car is making the noises!

it could be a few things

1) loose brake pads
2) pistons of the caliper engaging
3) warped rotors
4) pad deposits
5) stone in ur caliper

The ABS set in when you break so much that the wheels would normally stop rotating. The ABS keeps the wheels in motion so you can steer while breaking hard.

Though I think the ABS sound isn't so much of a ticking sound. More of a drumming.

But I think it's a good idea to let the dealer check it out anyhow.
