Bit of a cheeky first post, but I've just serviced (myself) my 1997 E36 328i saloon. Have tried to reset the service indicator using the paperclip method but without any luck, so was wondering if anyone had a reset tool I could quickly use. I'm in Bristol during the week, and generally in the...

Am really missing being able to play music via my MP3 player.
I would like to get an AUX in fitted. I am too ham fisted to do this myself and i would probably wreck the interior trim in the process.
