Going to DS helps a little but it is still there, my SL600 also started in 2nd so this is one of the first things I tried. Double push on DTC helps the most. Just installed a JB4, once I update the firmware I'll go over it again.
You notice something kinda similar when you floor the car while moving. The whole car spends about a second winding up before it does anything, then finally lets loose.
I'll play around with the tune and see if it helps any. Could be a boost issue but it happens even at low throttle settings where boost shouldn't be playing a part anyway. Since I can now see boost via JB4, we'll see. Its like all the squirrels have to run from the front of the car to the back before it'll go anywhere ;-)
