I seem to have that same problem with my gearbox. First is stiff to engage and second will grind a bit if engaged quickly (or normally) but will go in easy. If I pause for half a second between first and second, second goes in smoothly. First changes depending on how i use the gear stick. If i push it over and up with the flat of my hand it's hard to get in gear, but if I physically grab the lever with my full hand from above it goes in much better.
Been like this for 6 years without a problem. Had it checked multiple times by the garage and they didn't find a problem with it.
