Slowly let the clutch engage and have someone watch the engine to see if there is any abrupt/unusual movement.
+1, I think that he is experiencing the clunk when pressing on the clutch. But yes, these cars are notorious for having a lot of noises. If you wanted a quite car, should have bought something different.
I want a quiet car? I have a few manual car, for example my 10 year old 360 modena is very solid, very tight. The only noise it makes is tire squelching and exhaust screaming, absolutely no clunking. I am just a little surprised a new M3 would have such flaw.
