Second Gear Grind - SIB 23 01 09 - Help

I have researched this topic extensively. I have a 2008 M3 sedan 6MT with a pretty bad case of the gear grinds when shifting from first to second, and third to second. Due to this becoming more than an annoyance, my car is currently at the dealer. I am very apprehensive they will actually fix the problem, which i believe would call for a tranny replacement after reading through 1000's of posts on this and other forums.

I read a post from a while back that said there is a service bulletin, SIB 23 01 09, on this problem. I would really like to have this handy when negotiating the fix with this dealer. Can someone help me out? I have already searched, and searched, and searched for it. Thank you in advance!

I will be sure to update you as i work through this with BMW. Day one has concluded with the Service Coordinator calling me to say his techs didn't think there was a problem. The foreman comes in tomorrow to look at it. well see how this goes.
