What Stuttgarten says and also :

S will hold the gears longer when you accelerate to maximize your power and it will only shift up when you part throttle.

In C, your autobox will shift to a higher gear ASAP to maximise smoothness and also better fuel economy.

I drive in Sports mode all the time. Its fun.

But for those boring drives to the office and you don't NEED to chase Beemers...just stick it in C. Or if yer in a traffic jam, use C as well......

Re: W211 when to use S or C
some will have S and W, esp. in the older Mercs. Denotes summer or winter.

I used the C (equivalent to W) in winter when the ground is partially covered in snow so that the car drives off in 2nd gear thus preventing spin offs. I said partially covered snow because if the ground is covered too much and the bottom with the tyre on icy layer, my rear driven w203 is rubbish.

As far as I know, the gearbox is adaptive when in S mode with a couple of preset programming to match our driving style. I might be wrong here, but I was told that with the C mode, adaptability is off.

Re: W211 when to use S or C
^^^^^^^Tru Dat...

The 5-Gtronic on 210FL and later 7-Gtronic > are 'adaptive'/'Learning' gearboxes with ECU that adapts to your driving style....

Eg : Going up/down Cameron Highlands and yer in Time Attack mode (bawa gilez!)...The gearbox at S setting will extrapolate your throttle-on and throttle-off applications, i.e abrupt kickdowns/manual pulls. It then will have a gearbox 'mapping' to suit that. As you approach a corner, the box, after a few miles, will KNOW that it should NOT change up. It will maintain the same gear even if yer on a trailing throttle. That is good. You won't want the dang box to change up when you release the throttle and brake for the corner. Unless you're damn good in Left Foot Braking !!!!

That is why, after crazy driving stints in S Mode, you will notice apsal pulak kat highway nie..dia lambat tukar gear and bila brake..dia drop gear pulak...?? Because the box still thinks yer in Time Attack mode. After say 5-10 minutes of highway driving, no matter what speed..and yer not going crazy with kickdowns and shifts, the box will then ease off and just have the normal S mode which is pulling higher rpms before change ups and will change on part throttle.

In C...they don't have the adaptive thingy because yer supposed to drive decent anyways.....
