Welcome to 1Addicts!

If your symptom is only present for shifts into 2nd and into 3rd I'd look at synchros. Clutch based symptoms seem to be gear independent

How many miles?
Any change to symptom if you double clutch?
Changed the trans fluid yet?

Hi 1and1

Car has done 51 thousand miles
Not changed trans fluid yet
Not tried double clutch

Got car from car market - so no test drive, sold as seen !!

Cant legally drive it yet as no tax - had a quick couple of goes up and down road to try it

Tried shifting slower into second and third - still crunch

The BMW specialist who said it was clutch not disengaging from dual mass flywheel said he has done a few F series different models of BMW with gear crunch symptoms

I think he car has been sitting somewhere for a while before I got it and i'm hoping the fault could go away if I drive it for a bit and move the transmission fluid in gearbox

Looking for advice while I wait for logbook from DVLA or order a gearbox !!!!!
