L99 sounds like in to high of gear,then BAM it takes off like a bat out of HELL

When my L99 is Cold or not totally warmed up.I will be shifting with my paddle shifters from 2nd to 3rd and sometime 3rd to 4th not giving it much gas, due to being in the neighborhood. It kind of feels and sounds like I'm in to high of a gear and it boggs down with little power. Then as I slowly start to push down on the gas pedal, it sounds even worse like I need to down shift. Then as I am slowly push more on the gas peddle, it suddenly takes off like a bat out of hell.INSTANT POWER !

It will do this many times, until it is totaly warmed up for a while...It even does it when I'm down shifting and then coasting for a while. Like when I'm not needing to push down on the gas pedal to slow down with the slowing traffic in front of me. Then as traffic slowly speeds up, I will give it a little gas and it sound like it is bogging down again, like I need to down shift it, so I push a little bit more on the gas peddle, then Bam it is like a Turbo just kicked in and I have instant power..Without any down shift..

What the hell is wrong with my L99.I took it to the dealer and they could not see any issue.. They must be High !! Help Guys

Watch your tach. If the car's cold, upshifting and running at 1500 - 2000 rpm isn't going to give great throttle response.
