I just purchased a 2002 Spyder CC and have not even seen it or driven it. Read tons about the cars and have loved it since it came out in '02. The wholesaler I bought if from drives BMW's and Mercedes and said the trans shifts hard and actually jerks your head in automatic mode. I have read enough to know that this is probable with a driver that is used to mercedes automatics. The deal is I want to know the real in and outs of properly shifting the trans with the least wear on the car and the most comfort possible. What is the trick? PLease help educate me!!!! Thanks.
