Thanks everyone! I got the 1200 service in and have noticed the same change to the tranny as others have spoken about. The dealership said all that was done was a oil / diff fluid changes and a check on the computer for any faults. Once I got on the road I immediatly noticed the transmission was less rubbery and more certain with the changes.

Closing on redline simply keeps the same surge of acceleration as noticed from ~3K on. This is to be expected as that is what the Hp/Tq graph shows. The only other difference is this one yellow light keeps blinking. Anyone know what that might be?

Yes, it is improved. It is now more precise. This is totally subjective, but it is better IMO. Perhaps other fluids were changed which may have affected the feel? Whetever it is, it is a very mild improvement.

I didn't know they had bugs that big in CA. Makes me think you were driving through Louisiana where the mosquito is the state bird. But, it's great you've gotten out there and driven it! Nice ride, you lucky bastard.
