DCT changing noises

Today when pulling into my garage and parking with my windows down, I switched from drive to neutral before pulling the parking break and shutting off and I noticed a sound. It seemed to come from underneath the car and sounded like the gears were moving and the sound was easily noticeable. I then shifted into reverse and then back and forth between first and second several times.

Does anyone else notice this physical clanging? I just noticed for the first time most likely because my Remus Race drowns out everything when at idle.

FYI it's not necessary to engage neutral before shutting down the car...

A normal clunking. You first get worried, then you know it's normal yet you still wonder but after 6 months you actually start enjoying it.

You'd here a very similar noise if you change gears (clutch in) in an MT.

You can sometimes even feel the click in your hand.

Normal.

My DCT has always sounded like the Millenium Falcon. I think it's normal.
