Sounds like clutch to me...
Cannot help with the fuse at this time as BMW did have a laugh in that department just to make you contact the Stealers and get some bull !!

Does it "bang" thru gears? If YES then clutch or thrust bearing...
If it is difficult to disengage a gear then that could be linkage or internal selector worn (OR CLUTCH PLATE)..
HTH mate

Feul Pump

Normally the fuel pump is control by a relay. if you have your fuse box open then the relay should be under yet anothe cover to the left of the fuse box that has three relays in it. the first one closest to your front bumper is the fuel pump relay. here you can test by putting a wire between the front middle opening and the right middle opening and fuel pump sure come on. if it dose then your relay is bad. Tranny check your slave cylinder also.

yea slave cylinder is bad it was kinda dangling under the car when i got it so im assuming they didnt know too much of what they were doing.. gonna check the fuel pump out today and also start taking the trans apart i think it may be the synchro cause the shift feels perfect and the synchro may be stuck in one maybe two gears..will check the clutch among other things while ive got it all apart..wish me luck and update me with any advice!

The synchromesh is not able to lodge between two output cogs unless there is a disastrous failure inside the box !!
Did you inspect and re-fit the clutch slave cylinder?
