Reading ABS DSC fault codes

I've read a lot of ABS DSC threads on this board and others and have found some really good writeups on how to diagnose problems with the ABS/ASC-T system.

I, like others, have an intermittent problem where the warning lights come on and then clear away when shutting down the engine. They warning lights may come back in 10 minutes or 1 hour or 1 day with no DTC being set.

My question: When the warning lights do appear, aren't there any ABS fault codes stored anywhere ?

If so, has anyone found a way to retrieve these codes ? (and what equipment was used to retrieve the codes )

I can't believe a company like BMW makes it so hard to track and read faults with their ABS/ASC-T/DSC system.
