Mystery bug in my car

I discovered this mystery bug in my car today and would like some help to identify what it is. There were actually two of them measuring approx 2 inches in length. It had a metallic gold colouring and a green head.

 

Thanks,

    To me it looks like a Pentatoma rufipes.

      It doesn't inject any poison (like a wasp) or irritating saliva (like a mosquito), it is the sting itself that is painful (haven't been stung myself by just this species, but by some close relatives) but it leaves no itch or swelling (normally at least).
