Hi!

I'm a happy owner of a 518i from 1996 - but i have a small problem (i hope).
When i'm setting in 1st gear, and then trying to start, it sometimes jumps out - like i haven't gotten it proberly into gear. It only happens when i'm starting from at full stop - if the car is running very slowly and i then change into 1st gear, there's no problem. Could it be a clutch-problem or?????

I am having similar problems with a '96 E39 that I've had for one month. Apparently it is a common problem caused by selector fork wear in the gearbox. If you are in the U.K and North east there is a specialist in Worksop, Notts called All Gears who seem to be familiar with the problem. Good luck with it, Mark.
