DCT transmission question..

Do any DCT owners hear a clicking sound when they move from neutral to drive or vice versa? and in first gear or reverse when you step on the gas are you supppose to hear a noise outside like the gear is engaging like a clicking sound? :O

Mine clicks sometimes when going to and from neutral.

I have not heard any clicking noises while in gear.

I'm pretty sure that's just the clutch engaging/disengaging.
