So do we ignore it and carry on as if nothing happened? And what if there is an ABS/VDC failure? do we say "yeah yeah" and plough into the back of the lorry in front? Or, as seems more likely, if there WAS a failure, maybe the warning wouldn't come up?
Mine isn't that monotonous though. She tells me BEEP!"OY! ABS/VDC FAILURE", to which I reply "Really? you astound me!". I switch off and on again and next it's BEEP"IMMOBILIZER FAILURE!" but the engine is running and I am driving so I say "Don't be ridiculous you silly girl!". Then BEEP"BRAKE LIGHT FAILURE!" so daughter gets out and has a look and shouts "No mum, everything's fine". by now the anger is beginning to bubble up under my smiling Alfa Addict Exterior.
Then I get BEEP"ENGINE OIL PRESSURE FAILURE!".......Go on. Have a guess what I shout back. Yes that's right. it's "Aw will you just go and BEEP yourself!
Anyway in she goes today for a good coat of looking at, and quite simply, if she doesn't pick her feet up over the oxer after that, she goes, and I'll buy something more.....GERMAN..... and sit quietly in my reliable boring car and wait for the 149, whilst doing the lottery and dreaming of my 8C Spider......... ;-)
