Try this, push your hand on the top of the trunk on the corner (where you you mount a m3 spoiler) If that stops the rattle, then the post that the latching mechanism is loose or not adjusted. If that doesn't help it may be just your lisence plate frame or both. I just installed a plate frame I bought off of RyanA3 and both combined silenced my trunk rattle. To adjust your hook and latch mechanism, just take the rear trim off the trunk to get to the 2 nuts. Loosen them and push the whole plate down. While you push down, tighten up the nuts. Put the trim back on and crank it up to see if the rattle is gone.
