W204 C63 Gear box issue?

Reading up on past information on the cost of rebuilding the TC and mct boxes, I'm still of the opinion there isn't much in it on a financial basis. If the information I was reading is of an accurate valuation. I'm also still of the opinion the more modern, dynamic ability of the mct box suits to my liking more than a TC box. The MCT suits the engine in the AMG very well. Where as the 5 speed is a great fit in the e320 CDI.
 
So genuine? I have had 2008 c63,2012 c63, 2017 c63 now have SLK55 AMG 2005 all have the 7 speed box but the difference between the 4 are night and day the question is why ,apart from mapping
Sorry for thread hijack
 
None of the above are as good as the 8 speed ZF box
Although I never had an issue with the 7g box in my 204 (apart from a clunky change in the lower ratios when cold), I must admit the ZF8 in the 3 series is pretty impressive; I like the way it downchanges and holds onto the lower gears to give engine braking when going downhill.Something the 7g needed a paddle shift command to do.
I guess it's all down to the programming.
