Some carbonated and some flat
 
Recently made Dunkelweizen and kept some for myself and took some to my brother-in-law. His was flat and mine had a great frothy head. All was bottled at the same time and the only difference I can determine was the 4 hr car ride. Anyone ever hear of yeast getting car sick?

I'd say uneven distribution of the priming solution.

Carbonation can vary with storing temperature. Did he put it right away in his fridge?

they even out over time .. I've had very uneven carbonation at 2 weeks, and then every bottle I opened after 4 weeks was about exactly the same.

How long have they been in the bottle? Uneven carbing is usually simply that it's too soon. Some bottles may carb a few days ahead of others. but they all carb up eventually.

I randomly chose some bottles for myself after the whole batch was bottled. He had put his in the basement at about 64 degrees while my garage was about 75 degrees. I did bottle a little sooner than I usually do. So, what I'm hearing is that he should wait a while longer.

Yes, and maybe let them warm up a bit.
