[Biturbos4] clunk clunk

I noticed some time ago while prowling the web that someone sells an upgraded transmission 
mount for the S4.  I assume it was for a reason, although the only problem I've had so far 
is the movement you can see in the shifter.  I don't know, it's a long shot, but maybe...

I know this is really vague, but lately my 2000 S4 does 2 very subtle clunks (from i'm 
guessing the transmission) when i start
out from a stop.  Doesn't do it as accelerate in any other gears, only from a standing 
start (standard transmission).  It's pretty
subtle, probably only something you'd notice if you drive it every day...i've already had 
one mechanic not be able to feel it.  Definitely
something subtle thru the seat of the pants/steering/pedals kinda feel.  At first i 
thought maybe the clutch was gonna slip, but again it's only when starting out and happens 
even with very gradual starts.  In fact it's probably easier to feel on mellow starts cuz 
the engine isn't buzzing as much...the car has 95k miles.

Anyone have any thoughts about this?  I'm looking at a couple thousand dollars in 
service/repairs in the next month and i'm a bit worried that these 2 clunks are telling me 
i'll be needing more than that pretty soon... ;)
