Clattery engine noise - Timing chain/tensioner.
Search on the net. Not just an RCZ issue, the MINI gimps kicked off about it too.

Hi engine noise is definitely the timing chain/tensioner/guides which need replacing there are updated parts to replace the originals cost at dealers around £600 to sort so if you still have any warranty left don't get fobbed off and get them to pay either Peugeot or a specialist to replace.
As for the steering noise it coujd be tyres but could be steering rack or pump?
