I have the OEM sump plug off my XFR in my grubby little mitt as I type, and it's not magnetic and it has a rubber washer.
I replaced it with a magnetic plug which has a copper washer.
A sensible change :)

Bit of a coincidence, but my car flashed up the "service due" message a few days ago, so yesterday I decided to reset it following the "press a million buttons" method. I've done it twice before, so I assumed it would be a doddle this time around. Silly me! It took about 12 goes before it finally worked, I had to complete the sequence in less than 2 seconds before it worked.

Yes it's a bit tricky isn't it! I think I tried around 10 times before I hit the timing right.

The trick is that you have only three or four seconds to complete steps 1 to 5. Even the second time around it took me a few goes!

Same thing here the first few goes, but I just had to persevere and eventually I got there.
You really have to do steps 1 to 5 as quick as humanly possible!
It may in fact be less than two seconds.

Having had a service done in August, I noted that the car took a while to start for the first 25 miles or so. Start or restart from Start/stop.
As the fuel filter was replaced, I assume it took a while to fully prime it?

If this is a B service then does anyone know what an A service is?
The handbook says to alternate them then do a brake fluid and coolant change every 3rd year.

TIA

No it's primed whilst cycling the ignition switch a couple of times.
By the time you come to start the car it should be fully primed.

Not without looking in the service manual, I think there is a explanation in there describing the what's done in an A and B
