Disconcerting. *Really* hoping this clears up over time/miles.
I read in the owners manual or some other document that the DCT makes lots of weird noises and they are normal. Especially in the first miles. I've driven mine 3000 now in only 1.5 months and can say most of the sounds went away. but you can def hear the gears movin around when you get down to the 2nd and 1st gears. sounds very... robotic
