Flippineck, that must be 1000 miles. Presumably you're going to do that over a couple of days; do you visit places on the way down and back? What paraphernalia -- warning triangles and breathalysers and whatnot -- do you have to take with you to France now?

It's about 950 miles from home / 770 odd from Calais, one overnight stop each way. I really enjoy the trip - it's what I bought the 406 for, but the first time I've been able to do it properly since I got it. :roll: (My last one to Biarritz was in a Xsara HDi 90 estate with wife, teenage son + his mate & 2 dogs. Swore then that next time, I'd have cruise, armrests, elbow room, aircon & enough ooomph to cruise at 130 kph all day). 8)
Nowadays, you need: hi-vis vest, triangle, spare bulbs, 2 breathalysers and all your car docs / licence. Since my bro goes 3-4 times a year, I just borrow most of his kit. :cheesy:
