My fiesta diesel had this problem, although it got worse and all the gears were becoming stiffer. Which made me think clutch was on its way out or the selector to the gearbox was a problem which is common on the fiesta mk6.

Turns out it was neither the previous garage that had bled the brakes (don't know if bmw's are the same) hadn't bled the 5th nipple on the clutch and this made things much smoother. Thought id mention it as an idea even if its not helpful.

As far as i know from paperwork its on its original clutch at 148k miles
