    Vehicle : 2007 Vectra

    Trim : SRi XP T Saphirre Black

    Engine : z20net

    Year : 2007

    Mileage : 80k

    Default 1600 mile scotland road trip.. What would you take?

    Right guys, me and the wife off to Scotland tomorrow for 8 days. From Cheshire to furthest point at Dornoch, back towards Oban and eventually home.

    The bare miles are 1600! We are really looking forward to it. Especially as I've only done it in a V6 before! This time a mapped cdti with nav should be awesome!

    Anyway, I've had it serviced this week. Tyres are upto pressure and practically new... Even bought a VXR matching spare! I've done usual checks, brakes, screen wash etc. In the boot cubbyhole holes I have electric pump, overalls, warning triangle, spare bulbs, selection of tools etc...

    What else do you think would be worth having just incase for such a trip? I'm standing In the garage just looking at all my gear wondering what other eventualities I could cover?

    Cheers for any ideas

    Mike
