I came from exclusively driving manual transmissions to the DCT when I bought my Focus. I definitely like how it behaves like a manual transmission, but if you came from driving only slushbox autos, I could understand how the DCT would feel funny. The noises don't bother me, it's what comes with automation of a manual trans. Mine's not too noisy anyway.
Love the 2nd gear whine while decelerating :3
Also love the downshifting with revmatching. Downshifting a slushbox auto is the worst feeling in the world to me. GLURK
