How come when I shift to 2nd gear from 1st it kinda feels sticky and hard...Just not as smooth as the other gears. I read on other boards that this was normal. Any reason why this is happening? My warranty is almost up so I want to make sure if this is a problem that can be fixed I want to do it before the warranty expires.

Thanks

Yea, same thing in my car. It gets kinda annoying cause it takes me a little more time to get into 2nd than all the other gears.

It's normal. If you've driven other BMW's they're all the same. If you want to see a slick shifting transmission, take a Porsche for a ride. Their gearboxes are amazing.

If you've seen the dirty BMW lifetime fluid pour out of a transmission, you'll realize its not lifetime anyway. Redline made a huge difference.
