Nope, still vibrating. So difficult to pinpoint. Seems to move depending on where your head is in the car. So frustrating.
Mines not been fixed either 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬
So now I’m off to test drive a M2

As has been pointed out rattles can be so deceptive where they're actually originating from.  I appreciate I'm 2 (or is that 2.5 generations :wink:) behind you all. 

But recently after many months of driving me nuts with a rattle on the front passenger side that manifested between 60 and 70 MPH. I found that it was the plastic cladding that clips into the passenger front wheel arch liner that was the cause of my passenger side rattle.  It wasn't seated correctly and was rubbing and vibrating through into the cabin.

Previously I'd had the passenger seat, door card, glove box out, A-pillar trim etc to no avail.  The rattle was actually on the exterior of the car, so it may be worth a check of the car's underbody plastic trim before stripping car dashboards out in your attempt for sanity.  :smiley:

My GTI I at dealers now, took it for a drive with a technician this morning and he is sure the vibration I have is coming from the passenger side pillar mounted speaker. The small tweeter one. We stopped the car and he touched the speaker and the casing was definitely loose.

Just to let anyone with “the rattle” after having the passenger side pillar speaker looked at “the rattle” has gone.

Just been out for a drive and guess what it’s back, not as bad, but it’s back…

Exactly that. Mines back again now, worse than ever after two “fixes”.

Sounds exactly like that. Also get a vibration with revs, mainly on cold start. Build quality of the mk8 is very questionable
