Yep. Btw can someone tell me my manual says dont cross 2/3rd of your tachometer per gear. So how do i know that? I mean mine is auto so how do i know whats 2/3rd for what gear.

P.S : The red line is from 6500.

Hey 350L,

Basically what it says is that you should not cross 4300 RPM on the tacho ever. (~4300 is 2/3rd of 6500)

The S-class is an incredibly smart machine, so if you slam on the gas till 4300 and then expect it to upshift automatically it might not, i guess you just have to be sure not to slam on the gas (or put it in sport mode?) while breaking in coz i think that will force the car to shift just before redline. Play around and see what happens.

cheers
Rehaan

Hey the thing is that u should only apply maximum 50% Throttle and then only will it shift faster meaning at slow revs. And always try to drive in W Mode. If u slam it or go more than 50% Throttle then well it will change only when u reach 6500 RPM. The ECU adjusts to your driving style so drive it like this for about 100KMs and then the next time it will change earlier and also it will Idle at a lower RPM. Try it out and let me know.

I think vishnu meant that u should drive down to bombay for the next autocar india drag meet (and participate?).

These are held annually in bombay banglore etc?
