New to me: 997.1 GT3

Its been a couple of weeks and I have not had the time yet to deep dive into all the little rattles...now i think i hear a new one from rear window area..

I have to be honest, the car has been checked underneath and shows no sign of accident...but these rattles are starting to worry me. I don't have much track day experience, but wonder whether tracked cars develop rattles in usual and expected places i.e. seatbelt tensioner, inside dash etc...areas that i appear to have annoyance with. Big question is, am i too fussy...or should i just live with such rattles (they're not bad, but just annoying).

On a side note, I pulled the trigger on a lightweight JCR valved exhaust..WOW!
It sounds mega! and I also re-wrapped the steering wheel...

Summer of spending money continues...whats next? :)

I wouldn't let a few rattles spoil your enjoyment of the car. Tracking them down can be your challenge... :D it's true a brand new car probably won't make a sound but a few years later, stiff suspension and some parts on and off the car it's inevitable you'll get something.
