Watford gap services had kits with everything in on the way to japshow, just inside the doorway. Not sure how much they were but they looked pretty comprehensive, sticker,beam adjusters,high vis, triangle and a few other bits all in a canvas bag.

Hi guys,

Good luck with your trip. we're heading down south too this weekend.

Bit late now but we bought this from Amazon.

http://www.amazon.co.uk/AA-Car-Essentia ... B003FZBGMS

All you need. Hi Viz (for one) triangle, bulb kit, headlight deflectors first aid kit and magnetic GB sticker (no good on a Mark 3 :no: )

You only need to keep the hi viz jackets in the car, not all the emergency stuff, and you need a hi viz for every person. Also although you may not be planning to travel in the dark, firstly things happen and plans do go awry and also the Gendarmes won't consider that a good reason not to have them fitted if you do get pulled.

Lastly if couple has had to cancel and had booked a room in Folkestone for Friday night we''d be interested in buying it off them.

Bon voyage, and Tally Ho :yahoo: .
