Cool problem while shifting

I was driving my 328i and attempted shifting from 2nd to 3rd quickly and shifter locked up in neutral position for about 30 seconds while the clutch was depressed... it wouldn't let me put it into any gear, just wondering if this has occurred with any other members on here

Sounds like maybe a dragging clutch. Not common but possible. Check your brake/clutch fluid reservoir. It's probably fine since it has a level sensor that will squawk at you if it's low. Your pressure plate might be broken. Get this taken care of quickly. A bad clutch can destroy your gearbox which is REALLY expensive.
