Here's a brief summary of what happens.

1) Sometimes, when at about 45 mph, when put in kick-down mode (clicked), the car will downshift to 2nd yet will go very very slowly to redline and then into 3rd and everything resumes as normal. Like it climbs from 5,000 rpm to 6,200 rpm VERY slowly.

2) It sometimes stutters in 3rd at around 80 mph (apprx. 5,500 rpm - doesn't go slow like above, just kind of like bucks).

3) In 1st gear, the car will redline. As far as I knew, they maxed in 1st at 5,500 rpm (lower redline than other gears). My 260E is like this...

Any suggestions appreciated. Thank you.
