    my gsi does this sometimes when its cold. think the syncromesh in the gearbox is a little worn. i found that when its cold just wait a second from going into third stops it as it allows the gears to slow dowm, same from forth into third when cold just wait a second and it goes straight in. its only been an issue with mine at high revs but when its cold it doesnt go that high to do it.

    I've often had a problem selecting third when i first got the car....no Crunching.
    But just wouldnt drop in....couple of weeks back the gears went tight after driving on the motorway for so long. Waited for the car to cool, and everything went ok.
    Took some figuring, but turned out to be the linkages/cables.
    I list both as i gave the linkages inside the car and the cables a lube with some general purpose oil.
    Then sprayed the actual linkage on the top of the box with duck oil, no longer any problems with gear changes.
