Have you had a w126 before? I was very surprised at the hesitation when I first bought one. I'm on my second w126 now and it's the same. When you are at a standstill, drop the gearbox down to '2' and then put it back into drive. When you accelerate away, it will start in first gear, it should seem a lot better.
My pedal is definately very stiff compared to more modern cars, I think it's another charachteristic (poor spelling
) of the W126.
I don't know how hesitant and stiff things are in your particular car, all of the above could mean nothing!
