I have the same rattle. Sometimes drives me crazy but most of the time its unnoticeable. Usually if i hear it rattling I stop at the next chance i get, recline the seat a bit and sit in the seat to add pressure and its usually good after that. It seems like it only rattles in 1 position because when my girlfriend gets in the car and changes around the position it seems to rattle more once shes out of the car.

I have both rattles! but they are two distinct rattles. the headliner is a buzzing sound whereas the seats are more clunky.

Wicked! I work in markham as well (if you go to Bayview and Hwy 7 on the N side theres a parking lot and my car is usually parked there). Those two glass buildings you see along highway 7 by the overpass is my project :)

Good choice on the car color btw :P, we basically have the same car minus DCT

Will be watching this thread for an eventual fix as I too sometimes have this clicky noise coming the passenger front seat.

sometimes the seat belt on the passenger side rattles against the side wall in my car but its hard to tell with all of the other buzzes. Ive also noticed one of the sliding pieces for the vents buzzes, along with one of the plastic covers on my instrument cluster.

Oh nice

I have yet to see a modded MK3

I have a green filter installed, car is very deep and throaty
Racing pedals

To be installed:
Rally Mudflaps
Door Sills
Exhaust Tip


Planning on blacking out the rims as well, did you go the plastidip route?

Only modded MK3 I've seen was someone changed the little orange (side marker?) bulbs in the headlights to white and changed the low-beam bulbs. That's about it...
