Does anyone have trouble speed shifting from 3rd to 4th?

When I speed shift from 3rd to 4th sometimes I miss a shift and hit the spot between 2nd and 4th. Anybody else have this problem? In my A4 I never miss a shift. In the bimmer it is like 4th is not straight back, almost like it is tilted towards the passenger a bit.

Reading the tech articles on UUC webpage I noticed that they recommended changing your hand position after 2nd gear so I assume other people have this problem. Is this the best way to solve it?

I've never really had trouble with it. I did switch to the technique demonstrated on the UUC page and it made driving a lot more fun.
I used to yank the knob off going into second all the time. I got my dealer to replace the knob and all was well. Then I got a ROb Knob Magnum SS and all was better. ;)
