I've had my 5 speed 325 for a couple of months now and I still can't get a smooth gear change, the car seems to bog slighty.

I've driven manuals for many years and only had this problem with a Saab 900.

What am I doing wrong?

Without going into lengthy explanation: adjust your footwork to match german engineering. This car has throttle-by-wire system, and throttle pedal sensor responce could of been improved in lower range.
Or, BTW: it takes a skill to match RPM on BMW when shifting from 1st to 2nd.
