Hi Guys/Gals just saying hello..my name is raymond, i drive an oldie but goodie..lol its an E class 320 cdi.. high mileage, but well serviced and documented.£12 grand was spent on it by the previous owner who was a private hire company..i have owned it for 3 years, and also serviced it by mercedes, but major parts by F1 Autocentres who do an excellent job. Always passes its MOT, drives good, and have recently come back from my other home in Bulgaria, where she handled and drove like a dream..except for the journey back where there was some vibrations coming from the car, a bit like a wheel out of balance, but no vibrations through the steering wheel, so its another issue..the gear box when changing gear, acts like a manual car with a slipping clutch as it changes from one gear to the next..maybe a gearbox service can cure that. unless there are other suggestions as to its cause.

whilst on the subject..am going to change the horn on my car to an air horn with compressor..no problem there but..just want to know which is live and which is earth on the wires to my old horn, just under the bonnet on the L H side, as these wires will go to my new connections..thanks.
