What exactly is the W & the S switch near the automatic shifter....I am assuming that the S is for switching to some sort of sport setting...However, I am unsure of what the W stands for or does... Also, which one should it normally be in and is there any real difference between the two because I can tell a thing...
S is for normal or regular driving. It starts out in 1st gear. W is for wet or snow driving. It starts out in 2nd gear. w mode helps to improve traction and driving stability of the vehicle, according to the manual.
If people really want a manual you can order it from mercedes. My car did not come with the owners folder, just call the dealer give him your vin and in about 7 days you will have a new set with radio codes.
