I love my long low-profile $80 jack that reaches right to the front rubber jacking block.
This can't be done with the $30 trolley jack. That's best for flat tire fixing in the trunk.

Is there an easy way to replace the valve stem without dismounting the tire?
I think my little pin is bent, which makes checking the air pressure finicky.

How do you reset one at a time?
I either can chose read codes (FA) or clear codes (CA)

You scroll to CA, and then press ENTER.
It doesn't reset anything.

Who here has set up INPA on their laptop?

For now, I just need to reset the airbag light on my 2001 E30 530i.

For $25 I can get the SRS airbag tool, but $35 gets the whole INPA thing via laptop.
Has anyone used this INPA cable for $35 ?...
