I've noticed that when I'm coming to a stop, say at a stop sign or traffic light, I find its difficult to move the shifter into first gear, even at speeds under 10 mph. Now once I come to a stop, this is not problem, but I would think you'd be able to shift to first with out issue under 10 mph. I know the syncros obviously keep you from doing this at higher speeds, but I was wondering if anyone else has noticed this or if its something that gets better after more break in (I have like 6000 miles on the car). I never force the tranny into any gear, you can always feel when your good to shift, but it would be nice to be able to prepare to launch the car again, espec. near stop signs.
