CL63 harsh downshifts

my 08 CL63 downshifts into 3rd gear noticeably harsh and rigid. it downshifts fine if i manually selected 3rd down from 4th. it is better in C mode but it is annoying in S mode.
is that normal?

thanks.

Sounds like the converter needs adapting, not everyone can do this well, for instance here in the UK we only have about 8 guys that can do this well.

Not serious at all, just annoying really. You should ask a Mercedes guy if they are confident to do this, its done on STAR.

No Sir, not possible, I believe this is all done now via online STAR in Germany.
