I honestly didn't have a problem with it, but now you mentioned it it has got me thinking...

It is pretty easy to flick from N to D and vice versa in traffic. This type of box also automatically goes to P when you switch off the engine.

That foot operated parking brake is one reason why I won't even consider buying a Merc. The electric one in the 640d I had last week was ok though, as it was just a switch by the gear selector, and it released automatically as soon as you moved off.
