I got mine last month and found the same thing.

But, it's much better after the 2000km run in service. Not just 1-2 but other gears as well.

yeah mine got a lot smoother after the 1200mi service, but yeah sometimes the shifter refuses to go into gear so i just retry and it goes fine. dunno why that is, never experienced that on other cars i've driven
