Rattles in a Modus

I've done a bit of 'test driving' in the Modus recently trying to identify where various noises come from when driving. I took absolutely everything out of it (including manuals, pens, coins etc.) and drove around on different roads and at different speeds.

Some rattles were removed from just removing clutter, but there are still a multitude of noises heard when just driving along at 30.

There seem to be some coming from the roof (it's got the panoramic sunroof), general creaks and groans. There's a faint metallic sound, as if you're tapping a CD with a coin or key etc.

I also noticed that when I drive in to the driveway (accelerate up a small hill on the clutch, crest it, then down in to the drive) there are noises from above groaning as I do this manouvre.

However most of the sounds - I don't know where they're from. Does anybody have any common places for rattles to be identified in the Modus? Are there places I should be looking to shut it up?!

Thanks in advance.
