I'm new to this but i hope someone can help or point me in the right direction. I bought a 320 ci convertible o4 plate about three weeks. It is manual and no matter how hard i try i cannot get it to change into 1st or second smoothly. From a standing start is always jumps a little into 1st and 2nd but 3rd, 4th and 5th are fine. The only way to pull away with no jump is to let the clutch out very very very slowly. It does seem to get a little better when the car is up to temperature.
