Before i head on a long trip, I check list the following:
- Clean the whole car or just the windscreen depending on what mood I am in...
- Check all tire presures
- Check tire tread level (you don't need to do this)
- Check all levels (Oil, Washer Fluid, Coolant and others I can't remember).
- Check Petrol level (obviously!)
- Check CD Changer!!

I think thats about it, there is probably something I am missing (as always!) but other than that - these are great for long trips!
Enjoy yourself!!

I'm heading up PCH to san francisco from LA tomorrow (about 400 miles). Anything special I should do before I leave? I have a fresh batch of Mobil 1, new tires, and inspection II 3000 miles ago.

But, this is my first road trip in the 525i. Any special advice that I need is greatly appreciated.
