So, what is this DCT thing? It is the abbreviation for a dual-clutch transmission. It is also known as a twin-clutch or double clutch. It uses two separate clutches; one for odd and one for even gear sets. In your German vehicle, think of it as two separate manual transmissions working within one housing as one unit.
Perhaps a more technical explanation may be that A dual-clutch transmission eliminates the torque converter as used in conventional epicyclic-geared automatic transmissions. Just to give you a sense of history, the first series road production of the DCT was in the 2003 Volkswagen Golf.
