I've had my '05 for about 3 weeks now. I've noticed that after it has warmed up, shifting sometimes gets...for lack of a better word "off". To me is seems like the higher idle of the cold engine corrects this problem. No complaints about 1st gear, but 2nd seems totally useless, especially after the car is warmed up, it seems like 2nd is 1st all over again. The second thing I notice is that it seems the gears aren't "syncing". Sometimes I'll get smooth shifts all day, then other times its like the clutch isn't all the way in or something. I've been driving a manual for years so I doubt its my driving. Any ideas?

I recall seeing someone else post something about loose bolts holding the pressure plate to the flywheel, there may be a TSB for it?
