Loud thud 2008 550i

Greetings all! I posted this on E60.net as well, just trying to get a possible answer to this issue. So here we go: Several months ago while parking in my garage space, I put the car in reverse and began backing up into my space, slowly tapping the brake pedal and turning the wheel when I heard a loud clunk/thud. As I heard the noise, I felt it on the brake pedal and steering wheel (simultaneously?). It is now a regular occurence and I have been to the dealer three times, but when I get there, the car does not replicate the noise. SA states that it could be the transmission, but there is nothing that they can do unless they replicate the noise with a tech in the car.

to summarize:

Loud thud/clunk noise
Only happens when in reverse
Feel a slight virbration on the brake pedal and steering wheel

Any thoughts would be helpful.

Thank you!!
