How do you do a factory reset?

Having agreed a sale on my car, and it being collected soon, does anyone know if there is an easy way to reset all the settings such as.

Home address
Address Book
Radio Stations
etc etc.

I'd like to know this as well

Found a few articles on how to reset it, but that's just a reboot & does't clear out all personal data.

I don't think you can; it will be a manual process I'm afraid :-(

Delete radio stations? is your taste in music that bad you don't want anyone to see it?

Seriously, it'll take you 2 minutes to manually delete them all one by one. There might even be a 'delete all' under options.?
