Um, yes, and I'm afraid that we wouldn't have read about it on the Q
list...it would have made the evening news. 

You're lucky to be alive. Sue the idiots for all they've got...buy yourself
a nice new A8 with *some* of the proceeds. Cripes, if a woman can sue for
spilling coffee in her crotch, or the *estate* of some kid can get millions
cos the kid's bicycle didn't have lights (it *did* have warning labels not
to ride at night without lights!)...

If you sue, and win (and you will), the problems you ran into have a
greater likelihood of getting fixed.

Just my .02.
