- 2007 SL (R230)
I love the 7G in my SL350. Most of the time gear shifts are complete non events, but when you want to 'push' it, it holds onto the gears well and with more ratios keeps the car well in the optimum range. Manual shifting works well too. The only issue I have with 7 gears is when descending steep hills and wanting to hold a low gear, sometimes I seem to have to click down more gears that seems natural. That though is just me learning the car I think.
