I had the same annoying thing happen to me...pull out into traffic and before I knew it, I was already in fourth, not getting anywhere until I hit 2k rpm when the turbo did its thing. So I did some reading here on Mercedesshop, and I did some looking, and reading, and one day I got the balls/guts to fiddle with the bowden cable adjustment. Not much difference...then frustration took over and I gave that thing another turn or two, and voila! (note: the reason mine may have been out of adjustment, is that the head was removed at one point, so the cable was messed with)
Hope this helps -Larry
