Alfa Romeo 147

Suspicious noise

Hello there...
Im looking for a guess from you guys as to why my Alfa 147 1.6 (120bhp) is making a strange noise.
Its like a creeking/grinding noise and it seems to come from the drivers footwell somewhere, seems to be on my side of the car.
I dont have an idea as to what it could be, it seems to do it in the low gears and dosnt sound everytime i go over bumps.
Im hoping one of you guys has had some sort of experiance with this mystery noise i am getting from the front drivers side of the car.
Its got a bit louder since it first showed up (although it could just be really getting on my nerves now).
I have upgraded the suspension in my car to much harder KW coilovers, it could be something outta place within the front drivers side wheel arch or maybe its coming from under the bonnet in front of me.
Any idea's people? Any help appreciated, Thanks
