Re: IMPORTANT!!! NEED HELP!!!!! (bmwm540)

Could be as simple as an incorrectly adjusted and/or sloppy shift mechanism. It may also be (though not as likely since you noted this is a new tranny) a wore hub and/or syncro. Take it back to the mechanic who did the work. He should be able to find the problem and take care of it for you.
