ive had this problem for a while and really not sure what it is, when i first start up the car and its running cold i get this wierd noise as im accelerating and lifting off the clutch in 1st gear, i really dont know how to describe this noise but when the engines warm it tends to just dissapear its only as im pulling away in 1st, im just wondering if maybe anyone else ever had this issue?

Your best bet is to take an experienced mechanic or at least someone who knows there stuff out with you, to help with the diagnosis otherwise it could be any number of things.

If it only happens once when you drive off then its the ABS self check but should only happen once when you start the car. Its a ping like noise and can feel the ping through the clutch. Happens at about 12mph.

I had this with mine, in fact I think it was probably my first post as I was concerned too. If it's a kind of clunking sound that happens shortly after pulling off as you change between 1st and 2nd then it's the ABS self test. Everyone's seems to be a slightly different sound but it seems like it's pretty common and nothing to worry about.
