Default Brake Pad Change Done

I took off the stock front pads today and replaced them with Hawk HPS. Had to be the easiest brake pad install I've ever done, it took 45 minutes total and that included finding my wheel lock key and washing out the inside of my wheels with Rim Juice and a scrub brush because it's so damn hard to get in there with the wheels on the car. The new pads seem much better so far and better brake response in general.

I have the rear Hawks too but didn't do them because I don't have one of those compression tools that turns the piston. What I was most surprised about was how much life the stock pads have left in them. I've got 25,000 miles and the front pads weren't even half way gone. Amazing.

One thing that's pissing me off is that I still am getting the random "Brake Fluid Level Low" message on the display even though the fluid reservoir is full. I don't know if this is a bad sensor or what, but I can't repeat it on demand so it's going to be a bitch to bring in under warranty. Any ideas?
