My dad has just purchased an E55, we are picking it up on Saturday
I am just wondering if this particular model comes with the electronic gearbox that learns how you drive?
It's a 1999 model. I'm asking because when my dad took it for a testdrive he said he noticed a slight hesitation before acceleration.
We are buying from a main dealer and it will be serviced before we pick it up, so maybe it's because it had been standing for a while.

Thanks for your help,

Oliver Plante
