Brought donuts to the garage after I drove away and noise was gone.
It would never have occurred to me to replace bushings with donuts

The “clunk” noise not the “click” noise.

I have a 2018 S with 26k miles on it. Bought out someone’s lease a year ago. Heard axle click, fixed under warranty. This month I heard the clunk, as reported, also from the passenger side front. I did my own inspection but couldn’t see anything, I was able to replicate the sound for the service foreman at local dealership. He then was also able to recreate the noise after a couple of attempts.

So- it was determined that the bushings separating the main frame from the subframe were the source of the issue. Service covered under warranty(3 yr /36 mi) but the car was at the dealer for 4 days while they fixed it. Glad to have figured it out, definitely the service coordinator and the techs did not find it or have any interest so I asked to speak with service foreman and take him on a ride. Brought donuts to the garage after I drove away and noise was gone.

2 repairs under warranty in 10 months. Still showing 12 bars though.
Any chance you could pinpoint the bushing in a picture? My service dealer refused to fix anything, saying that the other models on the lot make the same sound, which is a chickensh!t excuse.

Your 12 volt battery is likely dying. That will produce random error codes. First check the rest voltage of the accessory battery after it's sat with the car off for half an hour or more. If that seems ok (12.4 volts or higher) then get a (usually free) load test at an auto parts store. If you need a new battery, I suggest an AGM type. The group number is 51R, and the R is critical.
