it's most likely the exhaust flap that rattles. You can disable it (golf tee mod) and check if you still hear the same noise.

I think I have the same noise
I hear it only on startup or when I turn the car off. And if by mistake the engine is about to stall (manual trans). Seems to happen at very low toms. Kind of a clunking noise, right. Mine is definitely not the exhaust flap. I told my SA, they kept the car for two days and couldn't figure it out. But they assured it's nothing dangerous...
If someone knows what this is please chime in
