If your having problems when the gearoil is cold then I would be tempted to drain out the oil thats in there and re-fill with the correct grade.
Sounds as if too thick an oil has been used in the past and it's not allowing the syncros to function properly when cold( oil thins out as it warms up).
I would be tempted to contact your local Main Dealer and see which oil they recommend using.If it is special oil then unfortunately it will be expensive,but it's still cheaper than a new gearbox!

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
