couldn't put it in 2nd gear.

hey guys,
This is the first time this happened to me. i ended up finding myself grinding gears when going from 1st to 2nd. I wasn't able to put it in 2nd gear at all so instead had to put it in 3rd gear. This happened to me 3 times today..all three times, i was taking off faster than normal... has this happened to anyone else before?

thanks

edit: and yes i always push the clutch all the way down..lolz...

I'm afraid when i go to the dealer, they will prob find nothing wrong as this happened only 3 times today...they will prob say i didn't push the clutch in etc....if it happens again i'll visit them..but hopefully it doesn't...

I had the same problem in my E90, sometimes second just didnt go in n I had to pump the clutch and/or move the stick to first n third and THEN it went in. Transmission sync can get a bit off, cogs not being perfectly alligned or something. It didnt happen pretty often but at times, never bothered getting it checked or fixed but you got a brand new car so go complain
