I have a 2003 C320 with 700 miles. I tried the touch shift for the first time today. When the RPM dropped down to about 2000 RPM after taking my foot off the gas pedal, I heard a whine which persisted for another 200 RPM. It happened in first, second and third (I didn't try fourth or fifth). I drove the car with the service manager who said it was "the gears meshing." Has anyone else heard this noise?

From past experience from other cars I would have to conclude that its because it's new. Any new transmition will run a little rougher brand new because the gears arn't settled in. You should give it another 1000 miles and if it still continues then bring it in to the dealer. I'm not positive on how an atuo works but I know that a manual will do that because of the syncros.
