...because if you didn't replace the brake sensors, that is why the light is still on.

Change the wear sensors or remove the light from your cluster.

When I did my brakes, I honestly didn't see any brake pad wear sensor there. I thought it supposed to be in the middle of the caliper mounted in the middle of the brake pads. where can I find it? does each sides have pad wear sensor? sorry guys, first time having a bimmer so I'm still learning. thanks

They are located on the Driver's side Front and Passenger Side Rear, pull out the brake sensor before lifting the upper part of the caliper. Remember the way it was inserted, so you can put it back the same way. If damaged, you can pick one up at your dealer.

So it may even be your rear one worn out.
