It happens to mine too, only now and again though.

Rattling from underside of the car is normal to an extent. There is loads of threads about this explaining what it exactly is. If it is a certain kind of rattle it may be the "flywheel housing" problem. I got paranoid at first, but its all normal. The noise should be less in "drive" and slightly more in neutral or drive

I have never heard any noise there but have read of other people having it aswell as other rattling and buzzing noises from various places.

On the right side of the instruments there are two buttons, when you are on the MPG screen hold down the button with the dot on it and it will reset.

This again is very normal and apparently is significantly improved with the gearbox software upgrades which I am looking forward to getting soon.
