And OP maybe your lifting your foot to early???
MY car actually doesnt go into gear completely sometimes, if my clutch is fully engaged, sometimes it simply will only go halfway in, and if i dont catch it, it will grind and pop out, if i do catch it, i can actually let off the clutch about halfway, and it will slide into gear with ease, its actually quite frustrating, and sometimes it just feels very bad going into third like a metal to metal feeling, once again with the clutch fully engaged.

I had that happen once first week I had the car less than 100 miles on it, never happened again, up to 1500 miles and 2 months. Shifted into 1st at a light, hit the gas and it popped out of gear.

Thanks for the Steeda props!

What? I had no increase in transmission noise from changing fluid. What gear oil did you use?

I have the MGW shifter. After removing the OEM pieces, I think one of the biggest problems with the OE shifter is the downright "wobbly" rubber in the rear bracket. If you're on a budget, replacing just that rear bracket might firm it up for you.

Thanks as always
Maybe I missing the oblivious here but I take into the dealer and have them document the problem. If you are grinding between gears I get it noted(i did). That way down the road if anything more comes of it you can say problem started before and I brought into the dealership.

Of the tranny fluid suggested I go with "BG Synchro Shift II". Again that should make things better for period of time but doesn't fix the issue. The same goes from the shifter.

Also how many miles do you have on car?

Agree, I had no increase in whine from the BG SS II... YMMV....

Absolutely. I'd have it documented. Contrary to what the anti-trolls may state, there are issues with the MT82....
