My 2012 DCT is just going in for its 1.2K service this week. I have the M-Performance exhaust which was installed before delivery and sounds great. BUT, when the car is warm and I am accelerating from a stop (with the windows down) something makes a ticking/clicking sound. Don't know if it's exhaust related or ??, but it sounds "cheap" and like something is loose and rattling. Drives me nuts.
Of course, this goes away with windows up or more speed, but as soon as I roll back into town on narrow streets with the windows back down, I notice it again. Ugh.
I'm fortunate to live in Germany only 1-click from miles of unrestricted autobahn so I can't wait to drive the red beast for real!
