While I think I remember the shifts being held longer on my 12/07, my 09/07 shifts the same all of the time regardless of temperature, even down in the low 20's. If mine's an aberration, it's one that I'm not complaining about.

My only annoyance so far at 800+ miles, is its tendency to hold any gear longer if you're climbing even the slightest incline. Mix in a little additional throttle and it'll go 4K and beyond before even thinking about shifting. But since it's consistent and predictable, I just consider this part of it's sporting nature and when it bothers me I just move the lever left and pull. The 12/07 did this too.
