It felt as if gear changes were riding the clutch to smooth out, I've never driven an auto like that, I rarely drive an auto, we have an SLK its changes feels a bit more positive in action, I will try another it might just be how a TCT behaves and why it feels less jerky than the Merc.
It has similar creature comforts to my MX5 (which has bugger all, in fact the 4c is more featured packed, positively luxurious in comparison
) I am used to in car noises and hearing the road, stuff being kicked up etc, on that score I thought the 4C was quite well insulated but there were these massive creaks up front on slow turns going lock to lock, again I will try another.
re the paddles, why are they nullified? felt worse than my g27 game controller, they should surely feel better in an actual car.
I have been doing some research on the seat height, it would appear that cars have adjustment via unbolting, can't say that I spotted that when I was looking but I'll be honest I was looking for a lever rather than race seat rails, are they all on race style seat mounts, just wondering if perhaps the one I viewed was fixed and that is why it did not catch my eye.
