Throttle Blips on downshift, C350

A buddy of mine was telling me that the new C350 has a more responsive tranny that even does throttle blips on downshift under certain conditions. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced this and what they think about it. It sounds like fun to me and even more reason to run an exhaust mod.

I believe you are talking about the certain sport package that allows the transmission to do downshift rev matching. Yes, this package is available on 2013 models. And yes, it would make exhaust mods more interesting.

Funny you mention the SLS because that is why I am excited about it on the "C". I got to drive the SLS at road Atlanta a couple of summers ago at AMG Driving Academy. The downshifts on the SLS were very cool.
