Installed springs, now brake pad warning is on.. need some help

I got my H&R sport springs put on yesterday, it looks really good. Anyhow I drove home from the shop last night, no probs. I get in my car this morning and my nav pops up and say something like "warning brake pads are worn please call BMW and make an appt". I went back to the shop and they checked all the sensors and showed me and all wires and sensors are fine. Has anyone ran into this problem? Thanks guys. Will take pics in a few

I had a break light and stability control light come on shortly after I lowered the car. Turns out that a steering wheel sensor was causing the problem. I needed an alignment. Had the dealer do an alignment and after that everything was fine. No more warning lights.

What was the problem with your car, was it also an alignment issue?

yea, my alignment was off, steering was off center, but im sure alignment could fix that, but its the brakes sensors that were screwed up, when i brought my car in for service, they told me the on board computer told them that i still had "999,999 km" left till brakes service...WTF, my brakes will last longer than the car itself?

My yellow brake light was on after the lowering, but once I got the alignment it was gone. Not sure what the brake light and alignment have to do with each other.

So they replaced the sensor and it solved the problem?
