We race a 325 its car( same shift pattern as an M-3) and have had the problem twiceon the race car, and once on my M-3 lightwt. The shift pattern is not quite an "H", but more like a "V", which makes it easy to get second gear, particularly in high lateral acceleration right hand corners. The usual damage is a complete set of exaust valves, sometimes a few intakes. We do the repairs ourselves and your looking at $500 if your lucky, more if not. Our solution is to allways make the 3rd to 4th shift backhanded. It takes quite a while before this becomes easy and automatic.
