My '97 328i has a rattle from the heat sheild on the exhaust that comes and goes. That would be worth looking at as a possible cause. Its a little behind the driver and its a tin material. I haven't figured out how to weld/crimp/fix the lose sheild yet.

does the rattle go away when you pull the emergency brake for one or two clicks? Do that and drive slowly over a rough road and see if the noise go away. If it does it is probably the rear or emergency brake cable a little loose. I had a similar problem that drove me insane. I tied the brake cable to the rear control arm with a tape and the noise is gone. Give it a try.
Note: the catalytic converter shield rattle is heat dependent (it comes and goes when the car is warming up). The catalytic converter internal rattle is constant (and would cause your check engine light to come on).
Hope this help.
