If clutch is pressed in and your getting the clunk, then it shouldn't be anything behind your transmission.

Edit... Even though your clutch has lots of meat, there are other parts it could be, shifter linkage or transmission itself could be clunking

Of all clutch components, I'd suspect the release bearing first. Those things are built like shit. Plastic, and often not lubricated correctly at small shops.

I'm with BigD, sounds clutch related. I had a similar issue on my e30 years ago, turned out to be the slave cylinder was on it's way out and was seeping a bit, which didn't release the clutch fully.

Mine does it slightly with everything tight.

Driveline lash... Most likely the bearings on the output shaft of the tranny or input shaft of the diff causing play in the mesh.

Alot of these items go owner to owner and have never been rebuilt. Everything wears out eventually (futuristic nanotech parts exempted).

I have issues with my driveline lately and changed the Centre Support Bearing and Guibo (Flex Disc). I also get the thump some times when engaging firts gear. I agree it's just driveline lash.
