trying to help my cousin solve a homocide

Hey, fellow car nuts, watch the video in this link and please tell me what kind of vehicle you think this is. Near the end, after the murder, you get a great profile shot of the getaway that can be frozen. I already took a guess but don't want to influence opinion so let it rip fellas!!

The intelligence that I'm getting through The Strategic World Command is that the victim and his assailant were arguing over who was their favorite Bronte sister just before the murder.

Ugh, that video is pretty grainy. It's hard to tell, from certain angles it loos like a 2005ish CLK, a relatively late model Maxima or even 3 series sedan.

If it was easy I wouldn't have bothered you guys, I was looking specifically at the glass and top structure when you get that one side view to freeze. To me it looks like a dodge charger.

having some experience in this sort of work I will tell you my gut feeling. The guys in the bling bling car spotted the woman and came back in the following days in a different car (possibly no tints) to tail this woman and see who she is or if she's the type to yap.
I'd look at the surveilance of cars that drove past slowly, like if they were looking for someone in the days after. A woman shaped like that would be easy to spot if you had to find her again.

It's not specifically his case but I thought it would be fun to see if anyone on the blog saw it and said "that's definitely a ______. Reason being the PD would like to talk to the bling bling car driver. My cousin teaches in the academy now.

I was thinking more of a black Mini Cooper Clubman with black wheels and dealer plates.

Jalopnik has solved a lot of these cases from their car nuts. Go and google jalopnik solves case, and see if you can try and host it up there too. Best of luck.

Looks either in the Hyundai or Honda/Accura family of cars.
