Just read back through this. I reckon I overreacted, and I owe you an apology. Sorry for being an ar$e.

Trouble is that most people are being deadly serious when their car nearly killed them, While I saw the irony of the STOP light, I thought that was secondary to your being upset with Renault that your 8 year old non-franchise maintained car had nearly seen you off. Any car of that age can be a death trap. My first car (7 year old Audi 100) tried to kill me on a number of occasions because I couldn't afford to maintain it properly on top of insuring and putting petrol in it.

Hats off to you for being able to appreciate irony at speed with failed brakes. When I drove the Audi while it was on fire, or when the stub axle sheared off, I was too busy appreciating the effectiveness of underpant elastic in keeping the runny stuff from dripping down my leg.

Maybe Monsieur Renault (Louis to his friends) could be persuaded to change the "Stop" warning to something more appropriate like "Start Praying" or "Second Mortage Required"
