The shifter on my SL has a gated opening at the very bottom. It has an E with an arrow and there seems to be a sliding gate in that position. What is this, it's not in the owners manual.

Thank you.

My Euro 1983 500 SL has that too. When you put the shifter there, the transmission will engage in first gear giving you a quick boost when accelerating from 0. The shifter stays in that position and you should change gears manually. Be very carefull as your engine will rev up pretty quick and you must shift your car on time to avoid damaging your engine. Have fun.
