For the rattle, I just stuck a piece of foam under the headliner right behind the sunroof. The rattle went away. My car is brand new and was just built a few months ago and rattled. I think the adhesive doesn't bond properly from the factory.

Mine also has the rough idle when the A/C is off. I've read there's a TSB that includes a reflash that increases the idle speed, so you might want to look into that. I'm gonna address mine at my first oil change.
Small world, and congrats on the new car! I love mine, just want to get these little things fixed.

Edit: I thought about fixing things like the headliner myself, but I wanted a car with a warranty for a reason. I've done too many repairs and rebuilt a lot of project cars in my 20 years of driving... it's time to let someone else do the work for me. :D
