OK, so I have the car now for just about a month and have done about 2k miles (all highway by the way)
The car is a 2lt JTS with a selespeed box. The noise is noticeable when I lift my foot from the gas pedal after acceleration and only when a gear is engaged (not when in Neutral). It will typically last for a couple of seconds and is not particularly loud one (with the windows closed is bearly noticeable).

Anyone experienced that before? Any guidance would be much appreciated.

What kind of noise? You need to actually describe it!

You are right - I ll give it a try.
It sounds like a mechanical noise, is a bit of a rattle but not something that reaches the cabin, you can only hear it. It is as if the exhaust is a bit loose but took to a shop yesterday and we checked it under and we found no obvious issues.

I can only hear it when on move with a gear engaged after the acceleration as the engine slows down to lower rpm but is not a sound from the engine for sure (as in that case I would be able to replicate in Neutral).
