That looks like one of the Audi's, their rear lights styling reminds me of a bumper car, which considering the way many of them are driven is rather appropriate really :lol:

I have seen one of those within the last couple of weeks but damned if I can remember what it was on.
I will hazard a guess at a new BMW 3-series.

I have heard that the Citroen C4 may have something interesting to offer in the tail-light department

You might have a staple under the X key. IIRC laptop keyboards have a different way of making contact than standard keyboards, and sometimes something metallic can cause this problem.

Thanks for your assistance with my ecks probxlxem. It happened back in sept
and I restored the system (windows7) and the proxblem went away.

I didnt look at it as a mechanicalx problem but some sort of bug inxherited which would be cured by restoring the system back to a time when I didnt have the problem.

Its back nowx so I'll give the system restore axnother go!

What's all this with lights now being some sort of awful style expression?

Lights are functional devices and should be free of the design excesses now being seen. Function should come before form and in most cases these days it's the other way around to the severe detriment of their basic function and purpose...

:evil:

Citroen started it of course with the gawd-awful but stylish XM headlights :lol:
