Without selling the vehicle.

unfortunately yes it does.its sounds like your 2nd gear synchro is out.unfortunately your tranny needs to come out to fix it.does it only between 1-2? or other gears? if all gears your cutch is goin but just between 2 specific gears a synchro times the gear teeth so they lock in and its off and teeth on the gears are the grinding you are hearing.sorry to have to tell yah that one.i always loved my old 325 is model always fun to drive.

Testimonial: "quick and informed thanks"
SOURCE: bmw 3.0 x5 hesitation problems
Use 92 octane gas. These cars don't like 87 octane. The computer retards the engine timing which causes the hesitation. If the computer did not ****** the timing you would get valve ping or engine knock.
