this was happening to me is it when the clutch isn't fully disengaged?

Ussually it's just blown timing on letting the clutch out. It could have been the clutch not being completely disengauged.

Actually, all it takes is for you to misshift once and you could have permantly damaged your gears. If you start getting lots of grinding in a particular gear even when you aren't driving like a maniac, most like you'll need to replace the gear or rebuild the gearbox.

I have mis-shifted a 3 or 4 times in my 325is; and it really hurt to know what i did. I was shifting too fast without practising enough first. Fortunately, i do not think i have caused any gear to grind.

Watch out when shifting from 2 -> 3 or 3 -> 4

that is when it happened for me.

I do it in 3rd every once in a while.... I think its just from lazy shifting.... I don't know... All I know is that I say naughty words whenever it happens.

how much is it to get it totally redone, and if you have to, would it be better to just to bavauto or something and get a better upgrade, instead of taking it in the butt from the dealer.

Sometimes it could just be that the shifter linkages are worn out (very common). The BMW shifter linkages are actually very sloppy and have lots of play. This usually results in misshifting during spirited driving. If you have a lot of side to side slop (play) you should probably replace or in my opinion upgrade your shifter linkage. Take a look at some nice short shifter kits. You'll want to make sure you buy the entire shifter kit, not just the lever, that won't solve the slop.

Anyways, if you just want to replace your linkages with OEM parts that's fine too. It'll just get sloppy again after a few years. The parts are amazingly cheap, but the labour is not.

The gears located in the gear box are not expensive, labour is expensive.

looks like a good place for short shift kits.

the top ones are bmw oem and the bottom ones are higher quality aftermarket ones, like the one from UUC.
