TSB for Transmission Fluid

Going in for my free oil change/tire rotation tomorrow as well as TSB 12-12-8. While it's in, I figure it'd be worthwhile to get the transmission fluid changed because I know prior year models had TSB's for having problems shifting when it's cold. Does the '13 have a TSB yet for this problem?

No, the gears in the 13 trans were coated with a phosphate coating and they don't have nearly the issues many of the earlier trans had. Still a little notchy but much more bearable overall

I think all 13s come with the thinner dual clutch fluid... It was the 11s and early 12s that had that thick nasty stuff

Oh okay, it's bearable just a bit annoying for the first five or so minutes. Wasn't sure if it was as bad as the the '11s and '12s. There goes hoping for a free fluid change

O man, you've got nothing to complain about lol.

But seriously have you ever driven an 11-12? I've driven a 13 and it's almost non-existent compared to the 11-12

Nope, I've never driven one so I just assumed the stiffness was the same thing everyone talked about. I guess not haha. I can't even imagine what the 11-12 are like then.
