Even if you have a Valeo,, with a build date of 11/03 it should be fine.
Re The transmission ,, you could try resetting the adaptive shifts,,,
Also , sometimes services have not been done as claimed ...what exactly was done ?,,,,get a correct trans 722.6 dipstick and check the fluid level and quality,
If in doubt , drain the fluid , replace the filter and gasket and the electrical connector bushing...
It is a fun DIY. project.
When I got my CLK55 it would do some harsh downshifts at low speed ,,,after doing all the above,,,it is now quite smooth.
