    Default Off to Italy in my Mondial T. Which spares would you take?

    I'm driving it Tuscany in the Summer in my Mondial T. A few years ago I did a similar trip in my 360 and I packed a few spare relays. I didn't need them, but what would you add to my usual Ferrari toolkit?

    I'm thinking about one of those aircon top up bottles for a start as it could be hit weather.

    A puncture repair kit, small compressor, jack, oil, coolant, immobiliser battery and some very basic tools plus the French lamp kit/hi viz nonsense.
    Nothing 348 specific needed IMO.

    For a modern OBD2 car Iíd add a code scanner.

    I wouldn't bother with air con stuff - from what I've heard, it's nasty stuff in the bottle you don't want to be dealing with. And if it fails, it fails - it's not the end of the world, and won't put you on a recovery truck

    A fair point........ although it does work, have used one to good effect in my 348.

    Huge amount of cross-over between a Mondial T and 348. Essentially a Mondial T is a slightly more sensible and tame, 4 seat 348.

    I would spend my money on - Fresh tyres, pre-trip inspection, download Waze onto your phone

    Chances are you will hit all sorts of road surfaces and weather, Waze will keep you safe and free from fines
