a good metric ratchet set (deep sockets come in handy too, especially 13mm), various screwdrivers/pliers/wrenches, multimeter, dremel, floor jack, jackstands. there's tons of other stuff, but i used the stuff listed above almost on a daily basis this past summer.
a set of female torx sockets, e6-e18 maybe. 17mm allen wrench or socket, 3-10mm allen wrenches or sockets, various other misc things. you can get a lot done with a standard metric socket set and wrenches, but euro cars tend to use uncommon bolts here and there.
