Changed my bridge seal and the four rubber thingies this weekend. Reset the adaptation and ran through the initial recommended cycles from the SSP. After that, not that much driving.

So far it is behaving better but still I experience more TC slippage on 3rd gear than expected

It still seems like the shifts 2->3 and 3->4 is happening in "two steps". I get first one motor RPM and then another. Like there is a "middle gear". I don't think I have seen the TC ever closing on 3rd gear, even when really pushing the throttle to max. Guess this might be one of the clutches being worn out...

I've done what I can, will follow up the behavior closely the next coming months.
