Not the best changing from 3rd to 2nd. Actually got worse when they changed the gear lever on the recall. I got the same answer TADTS!! I've only done 4k miles though so it may improve with use.

Better once the box has warned up. Worth checking the cable adjustment?

Only had a short drive home, but a great improvement on the old box all be it 1200 miles old.

I seem to be having the same problem going from 2nd to 3rd as well.

The car has only done 800miles.

I have to pause(double clutch) before I dare attempt to engage 3rd otherwise it makes a horrible crunch noise.

The S has now covered 10500ish miles and the crunch going into 3rd from 2nd reappeared on the new box after about 1000 miles. Mid summer the field engineer agreed for the 3rd gear syncro to be changed - not ideal. I have had a busy summer with car, sprinting etc and not had a chance to get the work carried out. I have spoken to the factory about the works being carried out there along with some other bits and pieces.

Have a look at the following for some more info

It does it ever so slightly going when from 4th to 5th also.

Tried joining SELOC but my email address is "@hotmail" so can't seem to register.

Guys... I just got some Redline MT-90 oil put in my 111R's gearbox (that has 31k miles on it)... oh my god. The difference is amazing. 1st gear is much easier to get now. 2nd slots in much easier, no grinding feeling. 3rd is now smooth as a baby's bottom - no scaley or grindy feeling. 5th was starting to develop the same bad feeling as 3rd but even 5th is now smooth

So pleased with this oil. It has literally given my gearbox a new lease of life.
