If that is what I'm hearing, then it is normal for this car. But again, I don't have the DCT so I can't say but might be ok. Now if its causing vibrations or there is a vibration that is from another issue, then it might not be co-located to the noise issue. Might be two different things going on??
I don't know about your car, but I've got MT and the clank isn't anywhere as loud as in OP's video.

Good idea. Simple enough to try. Keep us updated.
