Black, lots of chrome, BMW roundel under the deck lid, no other markings. Catfish grill on the front, not kidney. Wide fender flares on all wheels and a small spoiler on the back. :dunno:

btw, this was within 30 miles of the plant in SC.

Car? Suv? Wagon? Approximate size?

The Roundel would have been camouflaged if this was a new unannounced BMW. Lots of Chrome is another giveaway. Current and known future BMWs don't have much chrome.

You either saw car that wasn't a BMW or you saw a modified BMW.

Yeah, i wondered if it were from one of those outfits that mods the body. The guy had a vantity plate that said JB 007. odd.

A company car wouldn't have a vanity plate. Preproduction cars and test mules in the US have manufacturer plates.
