I don't travel with tools, I have no use for a vehical I have to babysit. A flat can happen to any vehical though, and the wrench Mercedes includes sucks.

Besides I'm always in a rush, I don't have time for BS, when the VW died I just left it on a side street with the keys in the glove box and told AAA to pick it up. My friend picked me up and I found a spare car.

Pff I spent $700 on a new oil cooler and lines so that wouldn't happen.

Same here. I only spent $500 though, I managed to nab a 617 oil cooler (Brand new Behr) back in the day for $330 on ebay, and paid about $170 for the lines. That was just under 4 years ago....and its still perfect and leak free.
