You need to find a independent BMW mechanic. With those lights on, there should be a fault code stored and you will know what the issue is. You can check to see if your brake fluid is low in your reservoir, sometimes that triggers the lights. It could also be an ABS Sensor on one of your wheels. You did say you have a front right brake pulse, so that would tell me that is the issue.

Yes Tom, you are spot-on with your diagnosis, but I would also check the 'pick-up ring' on the hub for damage or cracks.
