He told me that the seals in the trans were fine, but still replaced the clutches due to motor oil that has contaminated the clutches. So...... for those of you you that have been complaining about losing oil and having a slipping DCT, there you go! Now that my rear main seal and clutches have been replaced plus a reprogram, It's like a completely different car.
Thanks for the update, 2012SEL2gen. I'm sure this will help out some of those folks who have been having some concerns with their DCTs. Please let me know how things go moving forward; feel free to contact me if you need my assistance.

Thanks again!
