      Looking for some advice here, going to try to condense the story.

      Took the car in (~93k miles) to diagnose what I consider to be mildly rough DSG behavior. Cold start rattles, rattle on takeoff,...

      Mine went out two weeks ago. It sounded like it was bound to go with time - I think that the extreme cold and temperature fluctuations finally did it in. More of a noisy belt (almost clicky) sound...
