basically -> "NHTSA Investigating Complaints About Chinese-Made Ford Mustang Getrag Transmissions"

Edit, I did some research and see the mustang transmission in question was the MT82, where we run the gs6-53bz so maybe this is a bogus assumption. Still rather interesting when the main issue reported for that transmission is a grinding/crunch into 2nd, 3rd gear and trouble selecting reverse. Seems a very common issue here with our getrag units. Maybe just a coincidence?

Earlier post:
I just came across this and I must admit I didn't spend any time to even see which getrag 6MT ford uses, but the article mentions the same exact problems I am having with my M3 Getrag 6MT which BMW declines to admit is a problem. Heavy grinding on 2nd and 3rd gears and unable to select reverse without a lot of force or rolling the car forward first. Seems a little odd.
Any chance our getrag is included in this mess with defective chinese parts?
