Mein Auto: 2003 530i 5spd Manual
Trunk Money, case of beer & a 12ga Shot gun.

serously, I use my car for work and do travel 200+ miles from home 2-3x montly. I have a rubber made HD container from my old 4x4 I had which stored tow gear. It now contains:

-Hard hat
-Reflective vest
-Commerical grade small fire extinguisher that gets certified yearly by my company safety man.
-Old beach towel
-Wolverine work boots
-Whatever tools BMW includes in the trunk lid tool kit (checked to make sure it's all there)
-Spare tire & jack All stock items
-LED 2AA Maglight
-First Aid Kit I put together; gloves, bandaids, condoms etc.
-Pencil tire pressure gauge (No I don't actually use it regularly, it's for an emergency. I've checked to make sure it's close vs my dial gauge)
-1qt of Castrol 0-30 Oil
-Gallon of drinking water
-Roll 3M Duct Tape

Spare fuses are in the glove box fuse panel. Factory the car came with 1x of each amperage. That's all I need. If I need more than that I'm in seroius trouble. I have a set of jumper cables in the garage, brand new, light duty ones. But I took them out being I have a brand new battery and I now check the battery condition at every oil change or before going out of town 500+ miles is far for me, anything less is around the corner. I have a digital battery meter that checks battery condition and starter/charging. So I look at it this way, years ago I didn't have a $100 fancy microprocessor battery analyzer like the dealers used to have have. Now I do. So having a dead battery now a days means you left something on. Or you don't check your battery at oil changes.
