OK. I don't have metrics for the waves, which are a proxy for the wavelength or amplitude of the vibration. (Must be a tool for measuring these things - should be in Paul's patch as vibration is sound ...

First, there in the Red Camry there is virtually no observable difference in wave motion for any of the gears - neutral, park, reverse or a forward gear.

Second, in the White Camry, there is (to my eye) a significant difference in the waves between neutral (equivalent to Red Camry) and Park vs all the drive gears - for R, D, 2 & L I reckon the observed wave motion is significantly greater than in the Red Camry.

Audio Head

OK, I managed to download both movies. Unfortunately videos don't necessarily convey vibration strength. It seemed the water in the bottle moved ever so slightly more in white Camry than red Camry.

However ... does it mean anything. Every car is going to be slightly different.

How many kms on the clock on the red Camry vs the white Camry?

As a matter of interest, what camera did you use to film?

I think I still think it's in your head. Maybe more vibration in white Camry, but nothing abnormal. Per Python the objective test driver.
