Do a search over on the V forum under "drivetrain clunk". This topic has been discussed at length, many times.

I moved this to the V forum.

Personally, I do have this problem a bit and I think it has something to do with the clutch and the resevoir. Everytime I bring the car in and complain, it comes out with the clutch working great. A single commute later its back to its old banging ways. I think air is getting into the system.

My advice: 1. check your clutch fluid 2. take it in

If you hear noises (a clunk or like marbles rattling in a can) when you depress the clutch in 1st or 2nd under load it's likely coming fom the rear-end due to "wind-up" of the drive train. I have talked my dealer into replacing the differential front mounting bushing based upon some success in reducing the noise by others on this site. I'll let you know if it works.
