Touché! I'm not conversational in any language, and I know only a tiny bit of French, Spanish, and German, despite my best efforts. I'll definitely give a pass for English not being your native language (it's tough!).

Poor spelling/misuse of words is a pet peeve of mine and on Bimmerpost misuse of brake/break (and brakes/breaks) is probably the most common. (Axle/axel is another one.) But spelling matters, particularly when you're using a search engine, because if you want to see if anyone else had a problem with their brakes, and you search for breaks, you're only going to find the posts where someone misused the word and miss most of the relevant information. Sorry if I seemed to pick on you personally, it was really intended as more of a general observation.

But on second thought, I'll give you a break. Or should I have said, "I'll give you a brake"?
I think that my sentence was generally grammatically correct, except that on re-reading my original post I noticed that I wrote "posts a image" when I should have written "posts an image". I've fixed the OP.
