Hello all I was wondering if my tcu has been tweaked due to while in manual mode it will not shift up and will red line in each gear till I shift it. It is my understanding that stock is not this way.... can anyone help me verify this. Thanks-n-advance. -rick

Sounds like you either have a tweeked TCU or just lucky! I have a 2003 SLK320 and would LOVE your manual problems, my tuner said my TCU cant be flashed.

It's not a problem I can't live with! I have had the car for a year and a half and suspect it has been modded due to its full manual mode as well as the power, I walked a newer model BMW m3 on interstate several times even though I was outgeared 5spd vs 6spd I was still able to pull away hard. I did not get above 150 MPH so I was unable to see if the speed limiter had been removed but I'm pretty sure it has just need the PoPo to quit setting my detector off. I'm paitently awaiting my paddle shift kit from Chris, ( latemodel21) then I'm going hunting:burnout: -rick
