If you are talking about the '90 version, that is the first generation 4Matic. I think MB stopped using it in '92 or '93(?). It was re-introduced as the current electronic version in '98. From '94 to '96 they used the lousy ASR system. Awful in the snow even with Hakkapeliitta 2s loaded up. I'm not sure what happened with the 5 speed transmission in '97 though. I always wondered how the first generation 4Matic worked. Sounds cool actually.
