C220 CDI problem engaging 2nd gear

Hi, I bought an used 2011 C220 CDI with 60.000 km, 170 hp, manual box, and notice a strange problem with it.
I owned a few cars before, and never experienced a situation like this, I start in 1st gear and when I pass to second gear and I release the clutch the engine sobs 2 or 3 times and goes off. It is a very strange situation because the diesel engines are known to have a great binary at low rpm so this must not happen.
To avoid this problem I have to accelerat more than usual and release the clutch very slowly, what I am not use to do in a moving car. This is particulary annoyed in city traffic, where we use very often the first and second gears...
I drive for 20 years with manual gear boxes and I really know how to use the clutch
The same thing hapens with my wife and son, and all of them drive for many years too.
Anyone knows what can it be?
Thanks

There is a W204 forum too (in addition to the AMG forum that you tried earlier). This engine just isn't well known here.

Did they still put Delphi injectors when your car was built (and have those been swapped to Bosch)?

Hi, I really don't know what injectors my car has...
