First, enjoy the trip, it will be one you'll never forget.
Two, familiarize yourself with all the controls, esp how to open the bonnet, engine bay, gas door, etc. Know the mechanical back-ups as well.
Three, take a new spare battery for the remote. Nothing worse than the battery going dead in the middle of a trip. Ask me how I know....
Four, as in aviation, as you get familiar with the car, you'll notice all sorts of sounds you didn't realize at first. Know that this is normal.
Five, try not to stop the hood (top) mid-cycle. While it shouldn't harm it, it can get a little fussy and require a couple complete cycles to smooth its operation
Finally, I recommend taking an OBD-II reader and your mechanics phone number. Should you get a warning light during the trip, it's nice to be able to get the code and advice on what to do.
Again, enjoy the trip. Five years later, I remember mine as if it were yesterday.
Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.
