I cannot comment on what people in Germany or Europe actually beleive, or whether these beleifs consitute the intent of the design teams who invented the 124, but it would be difficult to imagine that a company that sells cars internationally to varied markets for a hefty price with a reputation for quality will somehow overlook an automatic transmission as a mere provincial detail thrown in for the boorish colonials who consider a chevette with air conditioning to be a luxury car. The whims of mb's domestic market mean little unles you actually drive in europe daily. mb builds cars for a truly international market .
