Trunk on 04 S430

I asked this question a few months ago when I first bought my car. The trunk is not "push-button automatic." When I open it either from the car or the key fob, it opens with a loud "pop" and opens with such force, I have to have the kids stand away from it. I also need to apply more pressure that I should have to in order to close it. Are there pneumatic struts that I can replace the springs with? I know there was a recall for the trunk lid springs for the 04 model year. How much would it cost to have a totally automatic trunk lid installed (probably more than I would like to pay). Other than this, I love the MB and have had no problems in the few months that I've owned it. I realize this is not the biggest problem in the world, but it bothers me. I had a 1998 BMW 740iL and its trunk opened gently with the key fob and closed easily. What gives?

It sounds like you need to adjust the lock or pneumatic struts. There appears to be too much pressure holding the thing closed.
