    There is an article in today's Auto Express about making sure your headlights are setup (xenon) or the patches (halogen) applied correctly. It says that the continental police can fine you up to 710 if they are not applied at all or not applied correctly!! the article also says that if you did have an accident and the patches were missing you insurers would only cover you for third party claims.

    I did a quick look on google and see you can pick these up for just over a quid

    So bagged myself a couple.... Good for leaving lying around on the parcel shelf as well ;-)

    Mitch78 is bringing his VAGCOM I think, it's posted somewhere in the thread, so hopefully can get the lights sorted with that.

    Probably not so much of a problem this time of year, as you don't need them on as much!

    Some of the older models with halogen headlights had a small lever inside the headlight to change them over.

    I have not got a First Aid Kit. According to the AA it's not compulsary in France, Switzerland or Italy.

    Warning Triangle should be in your car already, by the spare wheel, though to be extra pedantic you should move to inside the passenger compartment as apparently the boot is not a good enough place for it to be stored!

    What's the plan for Friday morning ? We are leaving Thursday night and staying in Ashford Thursday night, so where is the best place to meet and what time on Friday AM.

    I think everyone else is coming from Guilford or Reading right ?

    Been to Tesco today and bought them out of Red Bull! :D

    A decent Roadkill remover for windscreen.... our wipers weren't up to the job last time round.

    Remember this mess all over our windscreen...



    I promised myself a decent bug remover next time round... the wipers would just smear it all over but not clean.
