What I have found is the windscreen air vent is pretty bad and one of my main culprits. Its not the covers, its the actual plastic ducts under it that bang together and echo through the dash.
The cover just clips on and a small piece of foam wedged around the ducting does the trick.

Everything is basically clipped in and requires a trim tool to remove safely and you'll see the 7mm hex bolts for the screen and clocks.

Decided to carbon wrap the chrome strip across the dash, around the screen and the steering wheel piece.
Used 5D gloss carbon.

Can't believe Vauxhall didn't do that as standard. Looks great Scotty. Did you remove the trim to wrap it or do it in situ?

I had a bad rattle so most the dash parts were off. Thinking of doing the same on the outside window trims to tie it all together.

@Scotty

Very nice! Like it a lot.
Do you know how to take camera/light sensor housing apart?
I have rattle in housing and need to fix it.

The joys of owning a white car. Look at the tar spots from the last few months:

It was all over the doors and boot. Nothing that Auto Finesse ObliTARate couldn't deal with. Now the paint work is back to being glass smooth.
