Based on the OP's location in South Carolina I'd say those are probably the new X3. Its proportions have grown since the X1 is on the horizon. BMW is pushing production of the new X3 up by a year to this coming spring to compete with the new Merc GLK and Audi Q5.

The X1 isn't being camo'd anymore. It is about to start production for Europe this year, even though we won't get it until next year.


btw - the round tail lights are part of the camo.
