Stiff gear box

I just test drove a newer version of my 156 and both cars have a 6-speed manual gearbox. The gearbox in the newer, much lower mileage car seemed a lot stiffer than the box in my current car, particularly when moving the gear lever from left to right and back again with the car in neutral. The gears seemed to select OK though. It eased off a little bit as it warmed up, but was still a lot stiffer than my current car. I don't remember my current car being like this when I got it.

Anyone know if there are any linkages or anything that are prone to seizing up?
