Noisy Baffles?

Hi all,
I have a noise that starts about 20 seconds after engine start and appears to be coming from the exhaust. It's a rattly sound that doesn't change in pitch and only happens between 1000 and 2000 rpm.
Is this rattly baffles?

If it is, can someone recommend a good stainless steel exhaust with upturned DTM style rear pipes.

Thanks (Paul in Reading, UK)

It could also be one of the mounting brackets working loose or heat shields contacting with the exhaust.

Have a quick look before you splash out wink

There are two clamps at the front of the exhaust which rust badly and start to rattle. Mine does it. My back box went about a year ago. The car sounded amazing when the exhaust was hot, but when cold, the perforated tube in the rear box bounced about and rattled.
