Noise when turning wheel

Hey everyone, I have a 2011 e90 sedan and have a small tiny problem that had been slightly annoying. Every morning when I reverse out of my garage and turn my wheel to the right, I hear this slight thud and crunch noise. The surface of the driveway is uneven and my car is in an odd angle when this happens. I have only been able to reproduce it in the morning and never any other time. Other then that, the car drives fine and turning is fine on normal roads. Any idea what this could be?

my guess the diff... see if they will replace the fluid. Mine has been getting louder and louder and will ask for the same on my next service.

My diff makes more noise when cold during initial driving. I wouldn't say it's a crunch and thud noise though. Best to make sure all your wheel bolts are in just to be safe ; ) Sometimes the dust shields for the brakes become deformed and cause rattles or catch and pop. Just bend them back into place.
