Ok; so I posted that this is driving me nuts; I have had the car 6 weeks, so today I pull out into the neighborhood and begin to experiment; well many of you know that the 5th to 6th gear is awkward too right? and many of you agreed with me that it is down,to the RIGHT and back! Well...I did that today on the 1-2, 1st,down, to the LEFT and back; yes it has to be quick but stopping at the neutral spot for a second and then OVER to the left and DOWN...slips in with NO PROBLEM....it made sense to me if it worked for 5-6 to the right I would reverse the process on the other side of the stick; I still am taking her in for an adjustment but this seems to be a huge improvement, thnx for the "finger" tip and not palming too, somone posted that....let me know folks!

GUYS/GALS you gotta try this!

I drove around all morning trying this new shift pattern; NOT one time did I have to force the shift, 1st, down and a quick to the left and back; THAT APPEARS to be the sweet spot no matter how weird it sounds, at least on my ride..........I am gonna cancel the dealer adjustment although he told me this morning they are using Royal Purple in the gear box, said they changed some Ferrari'd to this fluid too, I have used Royal Purple products myself:D

Most sticks will give you a smoother shift from 1->2 if you do it with a slight pause at neutral, as opposed to just jamming it in. It allows the synchro to do its job.
