      That will be the ABS system being brought into play. Sounds like a metal grinding sound. The traction control system has a imitation limited slip diff mode which uses the ABS to break a wheel if it is spinning faster than the other one. You will especially hear it kick in if one wheel is on snow and the other is on tarmac. The ESP system will also call the ABS into play if you were slliding. Eg if you did a sharp turn round an icy bend. It will break the individual wheels as required to help...
