    While my A3 is running I can hear a light metal clattering sound like a little spoon jangling about. I can only hear it when the windows are down and I pass walls etc that bounce the sound back. Cant really hear it from inside the car. It doesnt increase or anything when I accelerate, car runs ok. Anyone any ideas where it might be coming from?
    Cheers
    Sam

    Often it is the centre exhaust mount above the crossmember, it rots away.
