330i N52 - rattle when under load...

I've noticed a rattle / clunking that seems to be coming from the centre console (or something underneath) when the engine is under load i.e. accelerating quite hard through 2-3000rpm. I've heard it worst when doing a quick-ish hill start, so I guess it is torque related.

Have tried to search for the issue and seems there are a few potential causes:

1) DISA flaps chattering
2) Exhaust rattle (exhaust is standard except for a BMW Performance back box)
3) Engine mounts
4) Something loose inside the centre console

Any thoughts?
