Sticky shifting

My 03 sometimes shifts a bit sticky. Maybe its not so bad. Just gets my atention every once and a while. I am currently using BMW super syn 80/140. Anyone else like this? One more thing... 18K miles.

Have you ever taken your linkages apart and greased them?

Try disassembling, cleaning, and re-lubing the shift linkage. Makes it shift like butter!! Plus you get to check the integrity of the ball links. Make sure they are tight and you will get long life out of them. Also check for free movement of the shift level on its pivot.
