Default Harsh gearchanges when cold

Hi all

My S65 has an odd quirk when cold.

It will do the 1-2 change very harshly when cold and very light throttle applications. Best way to describe it is when driving a manual car, and lifting the clutch up too quickly.

It disappears very quickly, 5 minutes or so and then its the same as any other 722.6.

Its just had a new oil + filters, no change. Its also worse when its very cold outside.
