Faint bumping sound...

I've just paid 1500 quid for a service and a whole bunch of other issues that have occurred - also been quoted 750 quid to sort the rear bushes which must be done by end of Mar apparently from Veloces of London.

Anyway, other than them faintly (but still noticably) scratching the silver fascia interior dash surround when replacing the stereo, they have managed to replace the window washer spray the wrong way round (so it sprays outwards and not on the window) , but most noticable of all - and i'm not sure if this is a coincidence.

When i drive, and i can mainly hear it when I drive slowly in 2nd or reverse (due to the fact the engine doesnt drown the sound out) i can hear this faint bumping sound which sounds like it is coming from the engine on the passengers side.

I can't see anything wrong, but its there and noticable. The other day i pushed the car up and down on the drive way and sure enough i could hear it.

Incredibly vague but does anyone know what this could be?

What are they doing to the bushes? It cost me 400 to get them powerflexed incl labour by a good specialist. I've heard they overcharge...

Yes for those prices I'd walk away. For that money you should be able to get the car power flexed and have enough sparre change out of £700 for an exhaust system!
