      That's exactly what I was afraid of.

      Are you 100% sure it couldn't just be what I described above? Mine sure does sound like a rattle, but it's just the rubber making funny noises against the...

      Same thoughts - flywheel/gear chatter. Mine does the exact same (as have done most of my manual transmission cars) - blip of throttle will make the rattle go away.

      So far so good on this new...

      This is what I would do even before checking fuses. These infotainment systems seem to have their fair share of software bugs. Sometimes they just need a reset.

      Yep, sounds normal to me. At idle, I can still hear flywheel chatter too. I learn to enjoy these sounds, as long as they're not cause for concern.

      With the gear selector now correctly adjusted, the new DSG feel fantastic. Almost too good. The only noise I hadn't noticed before (maybe because I wasn't listening for it) is a bit of gear chatter...

      Intake and spacers were removed to prevent damage, not so much for warranty reasons. Yeah, car was also flashed to stock. After the repair I...

      Thanks man. I appreciate the reply.

      I looked on top of the tranny and there certainly doesn't seem to be any adjustment possible there. Makes sense it could be in the cabin.
