Here's what's in my tool kit:

1) Lug Wrench and Handle (19mm socket)
2) Headlight Release Tool (5mm socket)
3) Philips Head Screwdriver
4) Towing Eye
5) Wheel Assembly Aid (a long piece with threads on one end and a hole on the other to aid with putting the tire back on. You remove the top lug, then put screw in the assembly aid. Use the screwdriver in the hole to tighten it, then remove all of the other lugs and leave the aid in. When you put the tire back on, slide one of the lug holes onto the aid and it's easier to line the lugs up and put them in.
6) Open End Wrench (10mm one side, 13mm other side)
7) Locking Lug Nut Key
8) Plastic Gloves (to keep your pretty hands clean when changing the tire)
9) Plastic Sheet (to lay out for your knees when changing the tire)
10) The cloth cover for the rear wind screen. I don't think that was in there, we just keep it there because we never remove the wind screen.
11) A handy-dandy leather case to hold everything (with a tag that says "assembled in Germany with parts made in India, China and Germany).

You can get everything but the tow eye, assembly aid and handy-dandy leather case at a local hardware store or auto shop for a lot less than the dealer.
