you're right i couldn't resist. well, i guess i'm not sure what i was expecting. is it supposed to drop all the way into second when i'm trundling along at 30 mph or so and i floor it? the revs go up over 3k quickly in third but it's not furious activity which i think is not the 300e's strong point anyway. in my v6 passat with the audi engine it will drop into second and go all the way past 60 in it. i'm thinking it's the 4 spd characteristic that i'm comparing to a 5 spd? please tell me if that's not how the car should be behaving.
