Doesn't sound normal. The only time mine rattles is when I put the car in neutral, let the clutch out and shut it down. If I hold the clutch in, it does not rattle.

Pretty slick, but I don't like the 32gb limit on the SD card. 64gb would be nice. How much was it?

I would suspect it was broken and someone replaced it. Just connected it to the wrong harness and never checked.

There are a few kits out there. Crutchfield has them or search on Google. It lets you put a DIN unit in the pace of the stock unit. The plastic holder covers the side areas.
