Does your car have EDC?
If so, you need the Macht Schnell EDC modules to turn off the warnings. Otherwise, depending on how close you are to a competent shop, they can unplug the EDC module and code off the warning lights.

You can't simply unplug the EDC and expect it to run normally.

Otherwise, you might have broken a sensor somewhere, which would make sense with the DSC errors.

Have you gotten an alignment yet? On my E46 I got numerous DSC lights after lowering until I had it properly aligned. Possibly wheel speed is out of expected tolerance of the DSC because of toe. I'm no guru, maybe excessive toe is slowing a particular wheel enough to throw the warning. In my E46 it was mainly when I was cornering at low speed that it would throw the light and then sometimes go off for a few days and the pop back up if if hit the right criteria.

I think That's what he was saying, either get the modules or unplug and have the car coded.
