My exhaust rattles at idle and can only be heard outside the car. I understand it is pretty common on the TurboX. Has anyone done anything to fix it? I love the sound of the exhaust and get many compliments so a new exhaust is not desirable.

I am guessing it is something loose internally so nothing can be done to fix it.:cry:

I dont have a TX, just an XWD Aero, but I just recently noticed the rattle as well. From what I can tell it is the heat shield on the front part of the midpipe that is rattling. I would think it would be a pretty easy fix but I haven't had time to get under the car, so that may or may not be the cause. Not sure if yours is from the same area or not.

wifes aero 2.8 did that within a week of getting it...took it to the dealer and they just put a jubilee clip around the heat sheild....no noise since...was a weird ticking sound at idle and a buzz when driving.....barely took 10 minutes to sort.
My TX is fine and original after 77K miles
