Up-shift from 1-2 and particularly from 2-3 feels as if I'm trying to push the stick through a bowl of large pebbles (lot's of intermittent resistance). When I up-shift on the higher gears (4-5) I only feel a single "thunk".

This all happens before I engage the clutch bellow 3000RPM.

It also spitted me out once from 1st gear into neutral. I'm leaning to think that I did not got the stick all the way in but it's still making me nervous.
again, if you have a 2008, it's worth taking it in and having the shop foreman take a look. not sure what the details of the SIB are, but if it results in replacement of the entire tranny, it must be a problem. I just don't want to go through all that right now, when mine is 98% fine. If you feel the same way, then just ride it out for now. Just remember, that's an option.
