    I'm guessing that like alot of us you have added your own amount of add on bits ice etc and also lowered it....

    TBH once you start playing like that it's never gonna be quiet again

    could be the rear seats or even the parcel shelf, but as autosparks said once you lower the car or start messing with it, you will never get rid of rattles etc

    Sway bar links
    The rubber goes and it makes a rubbery bangy sound? Maybe that's it.... you have to lever it to find out if it moves tho, you can't just shake it....
    Bonnet catch loose?
    Ever had any work done on the car? In the drivers side front quater panel there is a plastic boxy thing for emissions and if it's been touched it could have snapped off it's mount, it's plastic so would make that sound while bumping around

    That rings a bell ubugger !

    I damaged one of the ends on my anti roll bar link at the front when doing the springs.
    Got a new one and it solved it.

    It was a rattling as if the springs were loose !

    If its from the rear of the car, it may be the tailgate catch. Had this with my coupe since new. Just adjust the catch so your boot shuts tight.
