Maximum foolhardiness!

I am hopefully picking up a 2011 D4 SDV6 XS next week and will be driving Rennes on Friday and coming back to the north on Sunday. The car itself was a farmer’s car but has been serviced quite well. Everything was working when I test drove it last week but obviously that’s no guarantee it will behave. The round trip is about 1300 miles. Any advice about prepping for the worst?

Good AA/RAC/etc cover. As you said, hope for the best, plan for the worst.

One piece of advice I would give is to bring a professional mechanic with you.

Change engine oil, filter and airfilter.
Clean oil has never harmed an engine.

Thank you all for your replies. The car performed admirably except for a moment with a low coolant warning. Stopped and checked for leaks. Couldn’t find any. Topped it a little. No issues since. Very happy with it.
