Could be a leaky gearbox. Is there any drips when the car is running or is the underside of the gearbox covered in oil at all?

1 A lot of problems are caused by incorrect gearbox fluid level
2 Take it to MB dealer (don't bother with anyone else if you can help it) and get that checked (cost about £20 or free if you ask nicely)
3 If that is correct then perhaps this is the cold running issue? From cold the car is designed to hold the gears for longer so it feels like it should change up but doesn't.

This is meant to warm up the engine faster and is not a fault.

Hope that helps.
