    Took mine in yesterday for the same problem, and they said its the same thing, there doing it under warranty, when the rubber comes back in. Only had it a few days when the knocking started...lol.

    Just noticed a patch of paint completley missing from the front bumper about the size of a 50p coin, under the lip recess bit where the front number plate sits. Patch of paint completley missing, straight back to the plastic of the bumper.

    Doesnt appear to be any scratching or anything any where near, back to the dealers again next week for that too then. Its only 2 1/2 years old.

    I doubt it will be covered by warranty, but seen as I've only had it a matter of days they should sort it right?
