    Yeah, he was in a bag, he seems very happy in his new home.
    I actually drove home sensibly (for once) so hopefully he wasn't too traumatised!
    Actually fitted in really well, nice snug fit! :D

    I have the lead from my Nokia car kit, case for my sat nav, a disposable breathing mask, a CD wallet.

    can't get into the glovebox at the moment as the lever has become detached from the mechanism, the friggin thing don't work.

    The problem with common sense, is that its not that common.

    Interesting thread! Good work!

    In my glove-box

    *First and foremost, a dry powder fire extinguisher which is safe on electrical/wet fuel fires (probably paranoia, but my Dad was a fireman for just short of 40 years so I've heard some stories and there is rather a lot of electrickery running around my motor).
    *A 'clockwork' LED torch.
    *Miscellaneous cables - spare cable for Road Angel, extra cables for Sat Nav, chargers for phones, 'wired' handsfree kits (in case bluetooh fails me).
    *Fuses of all shapes and sizes.
    *Pen and paper + Notes of telephone numbers for insurance/AA.
    *A few CDs that are rarely listened to (mainly full of music my mates and I have made, therefore I've heard it more than enough!).
    *The remains of a nodding-dog (long story)
    *A couple of single-fingered gloves.

    Regards,

    Rob.
