I assume you've got a DSG. That said, your biggest issue would be changing gears from neutral to drive while rolling backwards. Although, I don't foresee any lasting effects other than what you heard...

The soft touch, and cloth are pretty cheap. Headliner has dropped on me three times, so that's cheap or improperly tested, and a known issue. Seat bolsters have been known to break, so I call that...
