I'm tempted to put a bottle of lucus into to see if that helps that last bit. Or would something else be better than that?
Drive it for a few more days and see how it behaves

Your fill procedure is correct....a little bit of an overkill but that never hurt .
Meanwhile look for a friction modifier...a thickening agent.

When the car revs up and then shifts, do you get a hard shift or a smooth one ?

Cogitating on your reports further, i suspect that your throttle position sensor might be due for a replacement. Test resistances according to bentley both when the engine is hot and cold and see if you find anything off. Good luck.
