    wheel well "clunk"

    Hey guys, I just picked up a new 2008 wrx sedan 2 weeks ago. I have 1500 miles on it and I have a noticed a very pronounced "clunk" in the front passenger side wheel well when slowly accelerating in 1st gear. It only happens when the car has cooled-down (20-30min). When first starting my car I pull out of my driveway and after about 5 seconds or so a "clunk" happens right in the passenger side wheelwell at about 5-10mph. Then I never hear it again for a duration of my trip unless the car has been parked and has had time to cool down.
    Please let me know if anyone has any ideas what this could be.

    Sounds like a strut settling or possibly a spring that isn't quite mounted right. Since the car is under warranty, take it to the dealer and let them figure it out!
