560SL transmission question

My SigOther came with an '88 560SL with 100K miles, previously owned by the sales manager for the local MB dealership and meticulously maintained per MB service schedule. I've a question though regarding what I consider to be a rather "solid" gear change even under light to moderate acceleration. There are no mechanical noises which would indicate a problem, but during normal upshifting it just seems a little harsh with no slippage at all and the shift can definitely be felt physically. Perhaps this is normal for that transmission and I'm merely used to American cars with smooth shifting which can barely be felt.

Thanks in advance for any comments or advice.
