    Surley it could be just a heat shield vibrating, maybe one of the bols have corroded? Or is it a more a worn mechanical noise?

    Its like a rattle only happens at slow speeds ie first and second gear like something is caught under the car , high speeds no noise .
    Whats the price on heat shield mate ???

    DMF will fail after about 20k rattling but at the same time you cant label a fault with a lasting time and be confident about it.

    But i will be watching this as i too have just got me a GSi

    Worth checking the heat shield, It might only need a self tapping screw in it to stop the rattling.
