Yes I've heared of the brake lights that get brighter with harder braking. I believe these are road legal in places like Germany, but not over here. Probably a neat and easy thing to do with these horrible LED brake lights cars seem to have these days.

Actually, thinking about it, the LED brake lights are OK, its the indicators that annoy me. They don't flash "properly" IMO like an incandescant bulb that "fades" on/off/on. There is no "fade" on the LED's, so it's a harsh "on/off/on" and it hurts my eyes and brain.


I agree re: earth problems, I had all that to sort on the Megane, sigh.
