(FWIW, I bounced Jonathan's mail to the community mailing list where it is 
probably more appropriate)

Hi Jonathan,

As far as I can tell, from the wikipage you point:

  Warning Triangle: yes
  Reflective Jacket: yes
  First aid kit: no
  Fire extinguisher: no 
  Beam benders: probably
  Bulbs: probably
  GB Sticker: not with recent Euro-plates
  IDP: ?
  GPS: ?
  DRL: recommended
  Green card: ?

One thing that is very specific to Switzerland is that you need a "highway 
vignette" which can come quite expensive. It is mandatory to be allowed to 
drive on swiss highways; it is currently worth 40.- CHF but is valid for a 
whole year.
