Real Live E70 Sighting!!!!!

Stratus gray with an ass-ugly lime green paint job over the headlights E70 sighted going south on I-85 in Greenville, SC.

I am going to the Performance Center for the next two days, so my camera is now on the ready (was sitting in a restaurant before)

This was, certainly, and E70, the Taillights with the light strip through the middle and LED tubes, and although mildly disguised by the neon green, the new headlights.

looks better than in pictures.

Note, no factory tours due to E70 Production.

PM if you know where to go to take pictures of certain things you may or may not be supposed to see, and I will post them here! ((Or I will do a PC School writeup or something)

Great! How does it look comparing to the E53 in real life. Very similar or look very different?

Very similar, actually. If it hadn't been for the green front end, I wouldn't have noticed. (the car was going 80 MPH in front of our window at a restaurant)
The proportions are great, they are the same shape, but the tail lights look interesting, the difference is almost like compating the pre-facelift E46 to the post facelift.
I also saw a few 335 sedans (twin pipes) driving past, along with about 100 other E90's in the time we were there.
I am here all week, so in the future, I won't be so baffled saying "That... Tha-tha-that's an E70" and will have my camera on and snappin'.

No, the r00m had glass walls and a carport attatched, and they were talking, so taking pictures of the black E70's through the window was out of the question.

Tomorrow? **** it. I am taking them during breakfast
