    Don't forget you'll be driving through France and Beligium too so will have to meet their rules.

    I always take:

    Warning triangle (should be in the boot anyway)
    Spare bulb kit
    First aid kit
    Normal documentation (licence, insurance, V5)

    Yup, Kev just about nailed it /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
    All we're required to keep on-hand is 1st Aid Kit and Triangles, but the rest should be in there too (IIRC France requires the bulb kit)

    Also keep in mind, even in "Limitless" stretches, if you get into an accident at anything over 130kph, the Polizei WILL hold you partially liable regardless of what happened /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    It may be hearsay but "I" beleive you may need two triangles???

    I think new EU rules apply that you must provide front & rear warnings....
