clutch pedal crunchiness

Not sure if its the heat (94+) yesterday here in philadelphia or if the car is still new (531 miles so far), but over the last week I've started to feel a strange feeling when depressing the clutch pedal. It's kinda a notch about halfway into the pedal. There's a thunking kinda sound underneath the trim where the clutch pedal disappears into. I figured it probably was a lack of lubrication on the spring. I remember our Z3 had a similar problem, but it was throughout the whole clutch pedal travel and was much more pronounced. Lubrication by the dealer did the trick.

Anybody have a similar problem?

Search for my post on the throw out bearing. I had something very similar and BMW has a TSB on it that specifies the replacement of the whole clutch assembly. Weird though, since your car was just produced and the TSB affects cars produced up until 5/01.
It could also be a bad bushing or need some lube. The replaced a bushing on my last 323i when I was having a clicking sensation in the clutch pedal. That fixed it. It probably is just a adjustment or lubrication issue. Good luck.
