Hi there one thing that I might make sure of is that you are not in limp mode.  Limp mode will put your car in third gear and will not allow it to shift into any other gear wich will make it seem very sluggish and seem to slip a bit.  Take your battery cable off for ten minutes and if that is the problem you will notice a differance right away.
