Rough Idle and Manual Transmission Noise

Two things:

Has anyone else experienced a rough idle? I'm only at 2xx miles, but I can't believe how rough the idle has become. Way, way too much vibration being transmitted throughout the car. A few months ago some others commented on this, but I was curious to get some new feedback. Has it improved with rolling some miles and a little more break-in?

Secondly, has anyone with the manual trans noticed a slight transmission rattle at idle? With the trans in neutral and clutch out, there's no other way to describe it except for a metallic rattle noise. As soon as the clutch is pressed in the noise goes away. Clutch out, faint tingy rattle. Clutch in, nothing.


To end on a high note, when moving I really love how the car drives.
