I want to say burning oil. I doubt it's the clutch because its a DCT but now Im wondering that it could've been me only in s3 and not noticing and downshifting? It wouldn't match the revs correct?

the only thing i can think of is that maybe some oil dripped somewhere on the car during an oil change and is just burning off. Did you check your power steering reservoir I know oil leaks out a little when putting the M through its paces. Other than that I cant tell. Your car is under warranty so you're good to go if something breaks but I highly doubt something is wrong. For all you know you could be smelling brake dust

I have noticed this smell after my oil change. I checked the cap though and I was able to tighten it up but I doubt anything could have been leaking the way it was. Anyways, I'll wait till my next service in 5k miles and see what happens. Thanks guys.

Lets see. I topped off my coolant. It was running low but idk if it was low enough to justify that smell.
