Clunk from front suspension

Does anyone elses car make a clunk sort of noise when the front wheels go over a bump like the gutters going into a driveway for a carpark etc?

It only does it for certain types of gutters, the ones which are raised about 2-3cm from the road, and only on the front. My car is only a couple weeks old, but has done it since. Booked it into the service dpt to check it out as well as an issue with the iDrive restarting next week so hopefully nothing major to be done!

I had an identical problem with my Z4 when it was new. Everytime I turned onto a drive over a smallish bump there was a quite loud thump from the front suspension.

Upon investigation there were some loose suspension components (can't say what exeactly). After BMW tightened everything up it was fine.
