Help Rattle noise from exhaust/wheelarch/boot area

Could someone please help me with a problem.
I am the very proud owner of a 3.2 GT and this is my third alfa (i'm hooked).
The problem is that I have a rattle noise coming from around the exhaust(tailpipe)/rear nearside wheelarch/boot area.
It only happens when I move off and can be heard at slow speeds, and I can only further describe it as a metal sound.
I have checked the exhaust/brackets and stripped out the boot lining but I cant find it.
Somebody said it might be the baffles in the exhaust, does that sound right?
Any suggestions and solutions please.

Hi, I'm to a newby GT 3.2 owner and have similar noises. I'm going to try silicon spray around the window/boot frame and also get the rear bushes changed. I suspect it's worn rear bushes on mine (33k miles). I will update once I've tried these.
