Mine has a rattle and I think its coming from the trim insert above the glovebox. Once I put pressure on it the noise stops. Maybe have a look there.

For ages, I had a similar rattle/buzzing from around the A pillar/glove box/passenger door area, drove me nuts.  It was most apparent at around 1500 rpm, so initially thought it might be the wastegate rattle.  Manipulation and gentle pressure (pushing in/out) applied to the long piece of door trim (down side of glove box) remedied it, eventually.

The sunglasses storage in the roof can also result in a buzzing noise that sounds like it's coming from round there so maybe check that.  I also had creaky door seals which caused rattling but Krytox sorted them.

Wastegate rattle??  Easily fixed with a small clip.  What revs do you hear it at?

MK6 GOLF GT 2010 growl noise VID!
https://youtu.be/NXizWDuHeBs

Anybody help me with this? Noise which comes when I start to drive. can't be the turbo as it only happens when moving up off and stops after gear 3. Like a proper diesel growl! No performance been affected but I'm sure it doesn't sound healthy? It only started happening now last 50/60 miles

Was yours similar to this noise mate?
