S3 8p (57) gearbox clunk any ideas?

My mate has had this noise for the past 2 weeks when stopping from reversing or driving in first gear. When you apply the brakes while parking ect you can hear this noise through the car and he said you can feel it in the pedals! We got the car up on the ramp today after thinking it was coming from the wheels to find its actually coming from the gearbox. If you hold the gearbox while he brakes you can feel it.

Has anyone had this noise/problem on their s3 in the past? The gearbox is manual and the noise seems to be louder when you have the weight of the car stopping on it. Its still pretty noisy though when the car is free wheeling!
