Bumping this post from 2006 because my beetle's almost 20 years old and this was a super handy list for making a bare bones tool kit i can keep in the car and I'm a preparedness fan. I added a flashlight, a spark plug socket, a generic obd2 code reader, spare bulbs, jumper cables, a mini sharpie marker and a utility knife. A multi-tip screwdriver saved space and weight. I always put a strip of paper between the battery and battery lead of the worklight so it doesn't discharge or leak acid.) Happy prepared travelling y'all!
