Coilovers fitted now I have abs, Dsc, and flat tyre symbol

Ok where to start... I fitted my coilovers on Sunday and all seemed good entil 15 minutes into my drive home. And then boooom the dash lit up like a Christmas tree! I have a traction light with a ! Next to it. A brake symbol and a flat tyre symbol. A few things to mention I havnt set the coilovers up yet so car isn't sitting as I would like( waiting to settle)then I'll set up and then I will go get 4 wheel alignment done. Steering wheels is not centre. And my headlights seem to be really high. Can any one point me in the right direction as to testing a few things before I start to panic. im thinking wheels speed sensor as I understand they are in each corner and are very temperamental but I am unsure how to test with my multimeter. Anddddd I have a full comp BMW warranty would it be advisable to let them sort it or should I try and rectify my self. Thanks ladies and gents and I look forward to you replys

Here are the dash board sysbols I am having

You need alignment. That's all.

I hope so man! I read something about steering angle sensor and having to reset that after alignment but I think it's a case of undoing battery for 10-30 mins the reconnect, restart car and turn full lock left then right.

Once I get alignment and everything reset if faults still are displayed I'll start cleaning them all. But I have had wheels of and ever thing seems ok. We didn't unplug anything.....

Update on self levelling lights, I found a sensor uncliped on rear passanger side swing arm (uk car). Just clipped in and all worked perfect in regards to light levelling.

Update part 2. Got my alignment done today from a place in north London who had a hunter machine. Got it all set up to a low rider performance set up and they also reset my steering angle sensor and all my problems have seemed to have disappeared! I give her a good test on the way home and she feels good as new if not better (30 way adjustable dampers on 10/20 soft). So for now all looks good.... I'm thinking its time to get rid of the run flats now though, they seem a lot noisier with a solid top mounts but it's ok for the winter I guess. So I hope this helps everyone out who has the same moment of panic like I did 10 minutes into a driver after fitting there coilys and they see there dashboard light up like a Christmas tree. Don't stress get alignment and all should be good.
