    Are your seats locked properly. I only ask this I had a clicking noise when changing gear or braking and it was my seat not clicked in properly after I moved it forwards slightly.

    If its from forward to rev its prob brake pads.
    if its on slowing down and DSG box some make a slight noise on down change (like a motor bike changing gears)

    It happens when you unload the drive train. So mostly when changing gear but also when you lift off reasonably quick?
