Sounds like the clutch is on its way out. When it gets hot it will be stubborn to get into gear, if it needed bleeding you wouldnt have clutch slip so its not the fluid :?

What you want to do is buy a quality clutch and take it to a good local reputable garage,not bmw, save you lots of labour costs and a clutch job will be easy for a good mechanic.
