: Hi, I hope someone can offer some advice.

: The gearbox on my M3 has recently got pretty difficult to use. Especially when cold.

: I also have real problems shifting from 1st to 2nd and also 3rd to 2nd.

: There is a slight crunching as I try and to avoid it I have to change gear very slowly at lower revs. (Which I know do!) Someone indicated a synchromesh but I am not clear what that means.

: A BMW garage in Belgium simply said I need a new gearbox which is crazy as the car drives fine when in gear - any advice and help would be much appreciated!

HI ! my name is Mike Nemeth i have a m3 too.
I can say that you should change the gear oil
with red line gear oil there are sythatic oil
it will be very smooth.
