Yeah really when i noticed that i was kinda worried too..

But it always goes off after a drive around the block...though it realy doesnt sound too good when you brake for that first time...ooooo..

and webb...your color is not bad..its like golden, mine look DARK ORANGE!! like its kinda funky but i'm happy when it goes off.

its very normal for this to happen, even after rain it will happen if the brakes arent used right away. the only time that you should be worried is if you have an excessive amount of rust building up
