seems like we are having similar issues , I cant seem to get the air out of the system though and my car runs n shifts fine if i start it in gear it just wont go in gear when the car is on weird 
Curious - does this happen more on cold mornings vs hot days?

The only thing I can suggest is to try using a pressure bleeder to force fluid thru from the brake fluid reservoir to the clutch hydraulic system. If you still have no fluid at the clutch master / slave, then there must be an obstruction in the connection from the brake fluid reservoir to the clutch master....

The instructions for the R56 that I have says to remove the slave and bleed with the slave fully compressed, and bleed again uncompressed with the slave back in place.

Use standard bleed procedure:

1. apply pressure on pedal
2. open valve at slave
3. allow fluid and air to bleed out
4. close valve at slave before the pedal bottoms out
5. release pressure on pedal

When you bleed the clutch slave cylinder, it needs to be in a fully compressed position with a special tool like this. Did you do this?
