question for 6mt owners

I recently picked up E92 335xi with 6 mt with 28k miles. I feel the car jerking or clunk when I abruptly let go of or press the gas pedal at speeds over 60 and with 5th or 6th gear. Is it normal for BMW 6MT? transmission problem? engine mount? any help would be appreciated.

Not normal, specially in 5th and 6th gear. Have it checked. If everthing is normal, may it is you getting used to the MT.

If you're used to driving a manual transmission and your other cars have not done this, then it's probably not normal.

I have 328 with the less-robust Getrag * gearbox and I've never noticed anything like it.

Does it clunk or jerk when out of gear, clutch engaged? Clutch disengaged?

nothing out of gear. only when driving between 60 to 80 mph. I can feel the jerking when I quickly give throttle or when I let off throttle quickly.

It does not sound like anyone is experiencing this. I will take it to the dealer and have them check it out including guibo and u-joint. thanks guys
