    I've noticed when im slowing down that my dsg seems to clunk when goin from 3rd down to 2nd.
    Does anyone know what this could possibly be?

    Change the oil, it's over due. Should be done every 40K or that's what my service book used to say if i remember correctly.

    Yes as said dsg service is well overdue. Get it done asap and that might sort things out :)

    Mine does this every now and then. But it could well just be a characteristic of the box?
    It's only when the box is in too high a gear than it should be so it's a low rpm change into a lower gear. A manual would do the same if you changed at 1000rpm.
