Generally it will always start in first gear if you hammer the throttle when stationary. Apart from that, using the kickdown will get it to change down into 1st gear if you're below around 20 mph.

its a '91 300e24v with 170,000 kms on it.
The car has a good service history and it's well looked after.
Using the kickdown button under the pedal,it will always kick back to 1st but when I want to select first from the gear lever it wont.
Thanx guys.
