    whats the mileage on your car smudge? sounds like a worn gear selector / layshaft problem with the gearbox at worst or maybe clutch bearing? or possibly just needs fresh oil.

    Is it hard to select the gears?

    The car has done 37k and is 9K from a service - Yes it is much worse when cold and clunky when selecting gear. But still bad when warm - Eg If you take it upto 5000rpm in 1st when you go into 2nd you can hear it crunch - at low revs it not such a problem. Why only these gears ? It's at the stealers on Thursday but I guarantee they will say "we can't find the fault" you watch - it's defo there. what do you reackon now ?
