Preparing car for European trip

Hi, a friend and I are going to both the spa and Monza grand prix this sept. any thoughts on what I need to do to the car before the trip. The car is booked into my local indy for an oil and coolant change for a start. All service intervals are way off.

Just to add GB badge!

Also make sure high viz jackets can be gotten without getting out of the car. I always just leave it on the back seat so it can easily be seen by any passing gendarme!

Don't forget to tell your insurance company as well as informing AA/RAC etc to make sure u have euro cover, and get an EHIC card - allows u free healthcare in europe.
