It has been bothering me for some time
BMP ssk will become more smoother overtime, so probably a tiny bit of added slop.

You may need to replace bushing & link at transmission, and any plastic washers in the selector arm & at the join to the BMP stick

was a common problem in e36 maybe e46, and some of the best SSK's for e46 m3 did replace these parts at the transmission
