Early days I know, but after 1500 miles I haven't heard any squeaks and rattles from our new ST FR (shame about the delivery dent, but that's another story). Maybe the 2015MY cars have some minor changes to rectify some of the commonly occuring noise problems.
Hopefully I won't be reporting back anything different in this thread in the months to come!
