Same observation, just had mine at dealer for 20k the works.. and had asked for loaner so they could check front clunk... I was positive they would hear it.. you couldnt miss it.. turns out they did the works service first and then test drove so by lifting the car the noise did go away... When they called me back saying no front end clunking I couldnt believe it.. asked them to keep it for the night so the tech can drive it home and back next morning put more miles testing.. They kept it.. Still no clunk.. Next day when I went in we did another test drive together sure enough no clunk... Lifting the car did a temporary fix...(Weird) Noise is now back after couple hundred miles..
