Yes Consider it as a bull gear.only used for fast take off

Sl's, and other MB's, have a "comfort" and a "sport" mode. The names may be different depending on the model of MB you have. But tghe operation is the same. In "comfort" mode, the transmission always starts of in 2nd gear and up-shifts sooner. The idea here is to reduce fuel consumption and give a smoother acceleration. In "Sport" mode - the transmission starts off in 1st gear and stays in each gear longer as it up-shifts. The purpose is for more rapid acceleration - but it will likely increase fuel consumption.
