what is wrong with your shifting?, mine is kinda notchy too sometimes and sticks or grinds a bit sometimes. When I took it to my mechanic he said it was because my clutch wasn't disenguaging all the way and was sticking on the shaft. I also read that some of the g60's have this problem, is there an easy fix?

My linkage gets caught between first and second and a bunch of other places! it just sucks! my friend with a VR6 without the shift weight shifts like butter!

Try changing your tranny fluid to synthetic, like Redline. It smoothed out my shifting ALOT. Make sure you get MT-90, it's the one for our 02A tranny. It takes like 20 minutes. Also, you can try bleeding the slave and master cylinder to further enhance the shifting.
As for as adjusting the linkage, check out http://www.corrado-club.com/corrado/ and click on the "Tech Tips".
Let me know if got any questions regarding the procedures above.
