thats wat i thought wen i read the thread form the start..i was like wtf? manual??
coz....all i hear in australia..is that mercedes had problems with the damn 5-speed gearbox (auto), because of the amount of twist (torque) the car unleashes..so in the end..they had to de-tune it..from 1,200Nm down to 1,000Nm...and they stil had to modify the damn gearbox and stengthen the bitch.
I dont believe mercedes produces any manual gearboxes for its AMG models..there are ALL sold as auto.
