Since the recent program update (which I think was 12B37) I've been getting the exact grinding/rattling noise as in the original video. I took it in to the dealer and they said they couldn't reproduce it, but that it was probably the syncronizer which could be heard on a 1-2 shift. They offered to let me come in another day and drive it with a technician to show them the noise.

Anyone have any recent experience with this or updates? It's unclear to me if it's harmful or not, although the noise is pretty awful sounding. For me it always happens when accelerating around 20mph.

Should I take it in again and try to show them the noise? Or is the noise in the video "normal" operation?
