How much force are you having to apply? My first thought is that they installed the clutch disc backwards-it can easily cause the symptoms you are describing, and usually much worse. Been there, done that on a '97 M3 I had that I let the dealer replace the clutch on. They had to buy another clutch kit and a replacement transmission because they broke the bellhousing trying to remove the transmission from the engine (since the clutch disc was installed backwards, it fused itself to the input shaft of the transmission-it was a mess).
Take it back and have them pull the transmission again.
