Can the transmission shift points on 2010 S550 be changed?

Customer Question

Can the transmission shift points on 2010 S550 be changed? If the car is operating at highway speeds and then wide open throttle is applied, transmission seems to shift all the way back to first gear instead of dropping down 1 or 2 speeds, which would be much better.

Hello, the transmission shift points are predefined for the most part, the only thing you can do to change it is to change the mode if you have the C/S button on the left side of the center console, when it is in C you are in comfort mode and it will shift differently then when you are in S for sport mode. other than that there is no way to change the shift points, i am sorry , hope this helps, Lou P.
