    Does anyone get this?

    Really annoying as it sounds dodgy but dosnt seem to affect performance, engine speed is normal.

    Happens when pulling away or moving slowly normally in 1st or 2nd gear just before the 2000 RPM mark (interesting just about the rev range the turbo would start to kick in?). its really hard to explain - i'm hoping somone out there will know what I mean! Its kind of like a clunk but not like componants bashing against each other or anything, I dont feel any shakes or knocks when it happens and the car drives fine, the noise lasts about half a second. It only happens while accelerating (notice at junctions where stopping and starting a lot) and dosnt make the sound as the engine speed lowers past the 2k RPM mark.

    If you check this link:

    That seems familiar, could this be what it is? I'm tempted to make a video to try and record it. As I say it dosnt seem to affect anything at all its just the sound makes my car feel like an old banger!

    Anyone out there have any idea what I'm dribbling on about?!

    I have no idea what a bottom arm bush is! :(

    Is it expensive to get replaced?
