There's a vacum modulator on the side of the transmission that you turn to either soften or stiffen the shifting characteristics.

Do a search function. There is a lot of info in the archives.

But Mr. Bill is right. 1992 is the first year of first gear start. 1991 and older 300E's start out in second gear. The 1 to 2 shift is a little abrupt.
