I know it sounds stupid and I don't mean it that way - but have you checked for really small items, stones or something that can be vibrating inside the door pockets?
If its interior rattle you can fairly easily determin the origin of the sound (have someone else drive the car). Maybe its a loose screw or somthing of the sorts.

Check the air vent ducts on top of the dash. The produce a bad rattle that sounds like it's coming from the touch screen display area.

I dont think its small items. Sound way "deeper"... Door pockets are empty.
I think its interior rattle. And i think its coming from door panels. On BOTH sides. Front left and right doors.
It sounds like whole door panel will fall apart when driving slowly. As i said it sounds like its coming from doors. Not sure.

@Scotty_b

its not dash. I have rattle everywhere.
But now its the doors i think. Not heard anything like that before.
I will go to dealership to fix issue... But for one year old car this is too much.

How to post video/audio here? I dont want to use youtube right now.

I got car after taking it in this morning apparently there's a bulletin on the clutch as mine needed regressing and it's only 6 months old as it's a 67 plate Sri
