    As I recall it's a pretty solid piece of rubber. My guess is it's some kind of vibration damper.

    I thought it was a smoke screen canister like James Bond’s DB5. You flick switch 1 twice and flash high beams once.

    I think it’s a harmonic/vibration dampener.

    It is just a dampener for vibrations to reduce NVH

    Yeah it is indeed a vibration dampener to reduce Noise, Vibration, Harshness (NVH). It is very common these days on many cars.
