My Ride: e46 325i
Clunk when pressing in clutch suddenly or at high rpms

My e46 325i manual has this distinct problem where if the rpms are really high and i push in the clutch really quickly itll clunk. This doesnt even involve me throwing it into a seperate gear or anything, only a quick engagement of the clutch facilitates this problem. It happens at parking lot speeds and also in high rpm eg. If i rev out 1st gear and try to shift to 2nd quickly.

Anybody have any suggestions? Thanks guys

Where is the clunk coming from?
You probably need to replace some or all of the following:
engine mounts, transmission mounts, guibo, differential bushings, differential carrier bushings.
Also inspect the mounting points of the differential carrier for cracks or tears.
