Odd noises after driving

I just purchased a blue RX-8 GT yesterday from somebody in Portland. They gave me all the basics about how to maintain this car, and recommended me to this site. Right away, driving home, I noticed some weird idle noises after stopping. I went to the symptoms and causes page, and Iíll be sure to go over those components when I have the time, but I thought Iíd share the sounds to see if I could get a better diagnosis from experts. Hereís the url to the video:
Thanks for the help everyone, Iím glad to be part of this community.

Hard to tell, can you localize where it's coming from, as precisely as possible?

Videos don't really help the viewer localize, since I would be listening through my speakers, not being there with the car. You'll need to track it down to a specific component, then we can help you figure out what it is and how to fix it.

Alright, so Iíve narrowed it down to the exhaust, or somewhere very very close to it. Any possibilities? I got home from work really late tonight, so Iíll have more time to inspect further tomorrow.

Exhaust rattle. Check around the areas of the two “cross members” that are underneath the exhaust. Also, check around the mounting hooks.

My hanger was rattling against the dif awhile back, drove me nuts until I finally saw it
