A very hip Suzuki Swift seen in the Sanlitun embassy district in Beijing. The vehicle is prettified by a body kit, a straight-standing wing at the back, a cartoon-wrap on the bonnet & the mirrors & the rear wing & that body kit & that wing, a roof rack, and best of all: Pink-painted alloys. The paint looked very fresh, as if it was done a day ago. That day was a rainy one, I hope the paint was dry.
