Loud shifter linkage

I have a 2011 1SS 6M that I picked up Saturday, wondering if anyone else notices that there at times the noise from the mechanical linkage from the gear shift (note, NOT grinding, just sounds like mechanicals engaging) can be very noticable at times. Not anything terribly bad, but depending on how slowly the clutch is let out (usually when downshifting), the noise can be pretty noticeable.

Anyone else having these noises when releasing the clutch/downshifting?

Yup. I have the same issue. Even a clean shift doesn't jerk the car or anything, but I can hear the clink clunk of the gear kind of clicking into place? I don't know how to explain it.
