Rattle from underneath under cornering....

Ive noticed this a few times but only this morning could i hear it properly as the radio was off and the Mrs and kids werent making a noise....

I notice it on the off ramp from the motorway near me, its one of those that goes back on itself and round so its a sharp continous banked left hander (J5 M54 OFF west bound), I get a mettalic rattling noise which is getting quite loud (the faster i go ) which stops a soon as i straighten up and I dont hear it at any other time

Any ideas, Ive looked in the arch but cant see anything and of course there is the engine undertray so cant see much there either

Past 1999 - Grigio Chiaro, 156 2.0 T-Spark SP1 - 2007 - Strombolli 159 1.9JTDM LUSSO SW + Alfatune DPF Removal/Map --- Present 2005 - Strombolli GT 3.2 V6

It might be some part of the exhaust system shifting slightly under the cornering loads and contacting the chassis - Has the system been changed recently or have you had any chassis work done?
