My VX S has started to have this tinny rattle, like a can is being lightly dragged along the road sound,
comming from the front 2 wheels for a few weeks, I can only hear it at 50km/h and under.

Id Say the sway bar links mate. The Rubbers are crushed and causing a tiny metallic rattle at certain speeds. Easy Job to replace.

Try getting under the car and hitting the inside of the tires and see if you can hear the rattle that way. Then you would be able to pin point where its coming from. I'm feeling its somewhere in that area. Something loose, metal on metal contact.

+1 for the swaybar links. It's the washers that rattle because the rubber bushes squash up.
