Who here has had their tranny replaced? Did you have any issues following replacement?

I have seen many members on here talk about 1 -> 2 grind, and otherwise, in the absence of grinding, complain of just a notchy second or third gear, and they have had their entire tranny replaced by BMW under warranty.

I would like to be able to reference the specific TSB # if possible next time I go in to see if I'm eligible for this (assuming that it did not make matters worse..). I have grinded a few times in my day and have some general notchiness.
Please see my other thread from yesterday:

I have heavy 1st to 2nd and 2nd to 3rd gear crunch. When I select 5th gear if I have the shifter over to the right side of the slot it will get stuck. It feels like there is a notch on the right side of the slot that catches the shifter ever time and will present a horrible grind if I catch that notch. For 5th gear I have to slide over into the 5th/6th slot and then force it left as I go up into 5th gear to get a clean gear choice. This takes deliberate action and a very very delayed shift pattern. Forget about quick shifting on my gearbox. I bet I run 0-60 in 8 seconds due to the gearbox.

I would be very happy to know if you have any advice on how to go about talking with my dealer to get a working transmission installed under warranty. As I mentioned earlier they say it's a clutch problem and wont honor the warranty on anythnig related to the clutch.
Thanks for your time,
