as a general rule of thumb- performance will go down slightly as will gas mileage.... dont know about the specific RPM differences. usually automatics are 70% efficient while manuals are 95% efficient- again Mercedes might be better- i dont know.

I think performance figures between auto and manual are pretty close so you probably wouldn't notice a significant difference. If you are seriously considering doing this bear in mind all the other components that differ. e.g Radiator, throttle linkage, prop shaft, drive plate possibly diff.

I have to ask, why would you want to swap from manual to auto in a 16v?

i will stab you if you do anything like that . And as far as your mechanic goes.....the next thing he'll tell you is that your muffler bearings are bad and that you need to replace your blinker fluid. Tell him he doesnt know what he is talking about.

your engine is 'a little noisy' because you have a Cosworth-engineered 16v cylinder head.
Auto Trans or Manual, it makes no difference. this is a performance car, developed to rival BMW's M3 and as such its high-revving twin-cam engine can't really be compared to the other 190's, 2.6 included.

new engine mounts and a thorough inspection of your exhaust system could help quieten her down a little, but maybe you should sell the car to somebody who's after a 16v and buy a 2.6 Auto.

btw, my Auto 190E will often reach 5700rpm in 3rd before shifting up to 4th if i push it hard enough...
