Is my Citroen's clutch gone?

While driving my Citroen C4 1.6 HDi 110bhp last night at 100km/h in fifth the rev counter went max and I lost all power. The engine was still running fine but I rolled to a stand still unable to find a gear without it hitting max revs. The clutch pedal feels fine so I have no idea what is wrong. I can still start the automobile just won't go. Any help would be great,

What's wrong with the brakes on my Lexus?

I replaced the brake discs and pads of my 2001 Lexus GS 300 about 16 weeks ago. They were changed because the whole front end of the automobile vibrated violently while braking - including the steering wheel. After changing the discs and pads everything was ok, but now it's back the very same again please.
