Old, cheesey but worth a hit:

In mine there is a First Aid Kit, a Coat (with NZ fern symbol) and a large box with 3 tins of paint in it.

A pair of socks.

I'll play along. In the Mercedes, my usual car, there's a combination tire pumping gadget / emergency light, a blanket (rolled up with a strap around it), two Rubbermaid bins for corralling groceries and packages on the way home from the store, and a Vancouver map book. In the Integra, there's a box that came with the car that contains a small flashlight, tire gauge, and a book about the car. Also a bungee cord. I think that's it.

What's up with the cans of paint, Jafa?

In the boot itself, a CD stacker that I only discovered 9 months after buying the car  spin , and a few uni folders. Under that is the spare tire, car jack and tools, and an emergency tourch and simple tool kit.

I don't like to carry around a lot of stuff in the trunk that flies around during spirited driving (gotta love those BMW suspensions  Smile), therefore I usually only have an umbrella, a first aid kit and a spare wheel in there.

    Nothing whatsoever apart from the manufacturer supplied toolkit and space saver spare wheel.

    I'm a city dweller so there is no reason for me to be carrying anything else. Junk in the boot means less usable space and fuel used carrying it.
