Sluggish Acceleration


i have a w202 1998 c200. my plugs are new. i recently changed my tranny oil. but i always feel when i floor the gas i dont get just drags until it gains speed. when on idle, i can rpm tol about 3700. after the car gains momentum i can easily get to 160km/h. What could be causing this sluggish acceleration???? my idling is fine.
