BT headset and a BT sender would be cheaper and far better for several reasons.

Re: front end whobble

Forward motion can create a wobble.

Head bearings.
Unlike roller bearings, tapered bearings torque can be variable.

Replacing the standard ball bearings with correctly torqued tapered bearings will fix. Guaranteed!
Doing this is NOT hiding the problem. It simply prevents the problem.

Re: Trunk latch adjustment

Always drop mine to close, have done for 7 years, no problem.
I have rubber strips to make lid a perfect fit.
No spolier or rack, doubt I would drop if I did.

Reset!

Many say you need to let the cooling fans come on then off.
This is not so, but doing so will have allowed enough time for the reset procedure to complete.
