There is a fix out there now.

I had new (apparently re- manufactured)striker plates fitted - initially I thought they had made a difference ....but then started to notice other noises and began to confuse myself so I just gave up!!

Overall I havent noticed it so much since they were fitted but by the same token I havent had the roof down with the weather we are having here!! (It was always worse when the roof was down!!)

Maybe I am just getting used to it so will have another listen on the way home and let you know!

I had a rattle/knocking sound from the passenger door and the dealer 'adjusted it' since then no rattle.
The cause was the door moving and not a rattle from within the door.

Perhaps there are different causes and solutions to this.

yep - a definite improvement - still a noise going over speed bumps tho!

Forecast heavy rain here for a week (think you guys are sending the remnants of your gulf storms across the Atlantic to Scotland!) so once i have the opportunity to put the roof down I will let you know further!
