RE: How to reset "brake pads wear" message?
Hey, St3rling, welcome to the forum.
If the dealer did the work they would have replaced the sensor. Once the sensor is replaced the message simply goes away on the next cycle, you don't have to reset it.
Did the warning ever disappear? If it was like that when you picked it up you need to ask the dealer what the issue is. I have seen it where the wire for the sensor is misrouted and it wears through and shorts out right away, turning on the message (yeah, I've even done that...!).
if you did the work yourself you would have needed to replace the sensors; they are cheap, even at the dealer.
And I have to ask, but did you check the rears?
On the cost, my dealer (E320, but really the same stuff involved) quoted $975 for F&R pads and rear rotors. I did it myself, bought all new Brembo rotors and Axxis Ultimate pads, parts were under $400 including shipping.
Take care and enjoy the ride,
