I have no problem with some rattles on bumpy roads. My car makes all sorts of noises on smooth roads and that's what bugs me.

Not to jinx it - but my car only rattles on bad roads and I have an occasional rattle that seems to be coming from the front - like if something is loose but I chalk it up to being a 6yr old car with 88k miles on it.
Plain and simple, I have never had a car that didn't have rattles - I know friends who own Lexus cars and SUVs don't seem to experience the rattles like other brands do but...they also don't experience the driving experience either. I think it is probably due to most cars that are performance driven have tighter suspensions which means that things will eventually rattle when you drive it a lot. My G35 rattled, my ex's BMW had a few and my GTI had rattles as well - I just don't expect to find a perfect car.
One question though - would you rather deal with a few rattles or drive a fast car (let's face it - the F-Type will be very fast out of the box) but have a numb feeling when driving?
Maybe the dealership can help you diagnose where they are coming from and eliminate some of them for you.

Default Squeaks & Rattles

My 2010 40th AE has almost 80K miles and has been noise free. Suggest that you check to make sure that the spare, jack, etc. are tightened down.

The only squeak my Nismo has, is the SPL sway bar links after I drive through the rain and they dry out afterwards. Spray some oil on them. Then I good until the drive through the rain. Oh, and I have 32,000 miles on the Nismo.

I've always praised my 2009 370 Sport for being so solid and quiet. It literally has no rattles or squeaks at all. It has 30k miles on it.

From what I gather from the OP is that he sensitive to noise and what we may not consider to be squeaking and creaking he does. To each their own and he should find a car that he will be happy with. His money his joy!. Heck some of us have been criticized by others because we bought Nismos and then upgraded them so we "piad more than we needed to for just a body kit" lol. The OP should do what make him happy!

If he really likes the Nismo outside of the noise then he should go ride in someone else's Nismo and do a comparison...it may be his car. Then he can decide if he wants to roll the dice on another Nismo or call it and get that Jag. Got to say that Jag is pretty swank if he got the doe to roll like that!

Located one of the main culprits. It's the headrest area of the passenger seat... sounds like a bunch of dry spaghetti noodles. What the heck!!

Also does your Z make this noise when you apply even the smallest amount of pressure to the bumper?

Makes the noise when going over bumps too. As you can tell from the video I was barely applying pressure. Shutting the trunk does the same.

That sound isn't normal, right?

Sounds just like Rusty described. That shouldn't be happening other than a good time in the back seat of a 68 Impala!

Try a '54 Chevy. It's got a queen-size backseat.
