Friend of mine with the Spyder noticed recently a rattle from the left handside A pillar and the dealer was told "it was normal".

He had it checked anyway, and found some loose bolts.

A lot of rattling and squeeks may indicate something's coming loose on your car too.

Mine is pretty quiet

I also have an '02 Spyder. It is not driven daily but when I do take it out it gets driven hard. Not to 30K miles yet and relatively quiet. So I'd think about getting a good mechanic to take it out and get his thoughts. If something's loose then prophylactic care is the way to go.

With the top up, you can get a lot of squeeking where the rear of the top seals against the car body. I lube mine with Loctite "dielectric grease" from the local Pep Boys part store (it's formerly used for distributor cam lobes and goes on clear).

You can also use a silicone spray "rubber lubricant" but it will not last very long.
