I just never, ever, try to downshift into 1st while coming up to a stop, I leave it in 2nd gear.
the flat six has more power than needed to move around at slow speeds....
if you are trying to do so, apply a small amount of power, preload the shifter a bit, and then tickle the clutch.... it will downshift solid every time.
and never be downshifting in a turn. bad news at slow speed.
