Boxster Rally Tool kit

What is in your tool kit? I am talking over and above the one that comes with the car
These cars are getting on and just wondering everyone is carrying.

Pullling apart the stock one just recently left me feeling rather unprepared.
1. 19mm deep socket and breaker bar
2. Tire plug kit (ARB?)
3. Compressor and sealant
4. Boost pack
5. Combination wrenches to include:
6. .....
7....

I'm not flailing away on a broken Boxster on the side of the road.

Good suggestions...I should reframe this as a kit to get your self out of trouble.

I did not think about the ingnition switch. I do have extra DME relays

2nd for AAA (or roadside through insurance company)

Otherwise...just a couple hand tools for quick things that AAA wont do or isn't worth the tow.

I added my old but functional accessory belt, a 10mm wrench (to remove the front engine cover) and a wrench (forget the size) to release the tension on the belt tensioner.

For the really paranoid - an IMS bearing...

I get most of this stuff, but are you really ever changing your brake fluid *at* the track? Why not just do it often ahead of time?

I always do it ahead of time. Itís small enough to throw in the back that I bring it just in case something goes wrong (with mine or anyone elseís brakes). Better than being sidelined for the day.
