Tyre pressures (inc spare), water, oil , spare spark plugs, check exhaust, check brakes, jack & wheel brace, warning triangle, breatherliser kit (for France but I don't think its compulsory now), spare bulbs, Euro breakdown cover, hi-vis vest, medical kit, keep luggage (& weight) to a minimum, take V5 document & mot & insurance certificates, headlamp converters, check out AA/RAC websites for more advice, check condition of rubber hoses around engine (if there's a crack change it, you dont want a water leak on a motorway), keep a watch on engine temperature and give engine an occasional rest to cool down. Have fun
Currently in Renoir White's garage:
Renault Trafic 1.7 Petrol Vauxhall Astra 1.4i & in bits Triumph Bonneville T140E & H-D XLH1200
