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?

Now, outside of the occasional delay in engagement which must have something to do with its "self-adjusting" feature, it is extremely smooth. So it just may be a break-in issue.
I was wondering what that feeling was! - it seems like the engine has not responded to your letting the clutch out until a few seconds later, then it gets the idea and you sort of surge ahead as the gear is engaged (right?). Do you know if there are any underlying problems that cause this or problems this may cause down the line? Or is this just one of those little nuances i have to get used to (it happens every few days).
