Default Transmission clicknig noise

When I put my 2013 350GS RWD into Reverse gear, it makes a clicking noise that seems to come from the rear of the car. I asked the dealer and was told that is normal for a RWD!!! is this true? Anyone else with a RWD hears this?

You aren't the only one, I'm also hearing this as well. I haven't noticed it until recently or maybe it only started happening recently... I'm AWD.

I hear it too. I just assumed it was normal.

Totally normal. I came from a 2004 G35 sedan that did the same thing. This is the sound of the rear diff / drive shaft locking up. It's nothing to worry about, some RWD cars are louder than others when going into reverse.
