Bowden Cable-1999, C280 Remote Throttle

Is there a Bowden Cable on a drive by wire C280 - V6. I was looking for ways to adjust the tranny shifting patterns and speed.

Anyone out there with experience with this model and the Throttle Position Sensor?

Doesn't have one. All shift sequences are commanded by computer. And, as far as I know, there is no way to reprogram shift patterns.

Your transmission is driver adaptive, just in case you were unaware. It adjusts to your driving style.

I guess the computer does not recognize Touring Car race mode.

It's a shame, but the tranny is so slow to shift, I swear I could count to 2 before it finnally does something.
