I took my car out for a blast this morning after about 2 weeks of sitting on the drive.
When accelerating at approx 80mph there was a rattling noise from the front end - sounded a bit like a loose panel.
Only happens on acceleration.
Any ideas please?

Checked the ‘frunk’?!! My low speed, annoying occasional rattle was the jack not wrapped up tight in its bag thing?!? Simple stuff first and all that!

Stick your head under the front .. Just check theres no loose panels that might start flapping around.

Check the number plate as well .. make sure its secure.

Other than that a sound clip if possible please .

Email me it if you dont have a you tube acc. and ill repost it here .
