ok i got some problems with my shifter, well when i'm shifting to second for some reason its a lot harder than the other gears and it kinda catches on somthing with out being in the gear trys to stop, and it then requires additional force to push it into the gear. second its just really sloppy.
any ideas?

A lot of BMW's have chronically have a hard shifting problem (especially while cold). You could try changing your fluid to Redline MTL. A lot of people have noticed improvements after doing so.

i think i was unclear... its not the actual gears (i don't think) it seems to just be somthing in the linkage. does that make sense?

Sounds like a good reason to buy a short shift kit. Should replace all the worn bushings giving you a precision shifting experiance.
