upgrading gearbox

Has anybody upgraded the earlier 4 speed auto box to the later 5 speed auto box?

I have a 1990 500SL with the four speed box.

Can anyone tell me what driving the later 5 speed SL500's are like compared to the earlier 4 speed? Are they more responsive? They always pull away in first rather than second unless I give it full throttle?
