    I have the same stupid problem. I'm going to the dealership for maintenance next week so I guess I'll see what they say.

    Check the cover for the spare.
    Check the "tray" behind the rear seat heads.

    you should check that the factory jack on the left hand side is secure and also that the panel that covers the spare wheels is located by the pins into the bracket and that the carpet is folded over that panel you will see how it should be wrapped over the panel, it can make a noise if not located proberly.

    if its your rear struts it is a knocking/clunking sound, I have just pulled mine apart and regreased them. I have pictures if you would like to see them message me and I can email them to you, it is a common problem with STIs so it is a good possibility your friend is right
