Hi, has anyone experienced a what I call a " clunk" when applying and pulling away. No problem with operation of brakes just noisy?

Yep, since new. It’s not something I’m concerned about personally. I guess I can hear mechanical brake noises a lot more, as there’s no engine noise to drown this out, like there would be in an ICE vehicle.

Yes, indeed. It seems to be the result of auto-hold mostly.

Yes, but only when pulling away.

It’s not that noticeable on mine most of the time, and certainly way quieter than my mate’s Tesla.

Mine gives a loud clunk after an overnight park, but fine after that. I have found that by reversing not much more than 12 inches before the first start of the day there is no clunk. Since doing this I have not had another clunk. I always reverse park, I don't know if that has any bearing on the brake tension.

Drum brakes (which I believe the Enyak has on the rear) are more prone to stiction. Its one of the reasons they are more suitable for hand brakes.
