I've driven enough MT cars over the years to know something wasn't right. My 135i shifted smoother.

Either way I had hoped they'd just replace the whole thing but the clutch replacement did enough that I'm not going to complain anymore. 25k miles on the clock with 3 months of warranty left.
mine is a brand new 2012 E92 M3 with a little over 3k miles on the odomotor. The transmission fluid was supposedly changed during the 1200 mile mark.

I am getting similar like you, 2-3 shift, could also feel metal on metal at times (no audible grind noise) and also at times, it happens on 1-2 & 4-5 shifts, where they are not the smoothest shifts as well.

Should I be concerned, or this is just normal for this transmission, and just live with it? thanks.
