    Howdy all...

    just reading the US forum and there is an interesting thread about some new gearbox update software that improves the shifting between 1,2,3 quite dramatically and seemingly for the better.

    Still a little unsure whether its for the MCT box or the older 7g.

    Has anybody in the UK heard or read about this?

    I've posted a thead about this as well. I also read somewhere of a upgrade but apparently there is no such thing for the c63's. For the sls there is but for the c63 the only thing that can help is to reset the gearbox to factory settings. It then learn your driving style.

    You could always get your TCU re-mapped (7G) which is supposed to quicken up the shifts.

    So it looks like this is a brand new (from April) SW update and its been confirmed its certainly for the MCT gearbox....

    Not yet - am still trying to track down an answer from them about the enhanced cooling package.

    Interestingly I had mine serviced last week and mentioned that occasionally the gearbox can jerk a little when first moving off after activation drive. When they gave my car back they advised that they had updated the gearbox software to the latest and the issue shouldn't happen again.

    It's an MCT box on a 2012 car.

    Now you mention it, mine stopped doing the slightly startled set off thing after it was serviced too.
