A baby blue Mazda 6, seen on an early morning in Beijing, the vehicle being more blue than the sky. The baby blue is painted on, which is good, because it shows more determination than wrap. The 6 is further prettied up by a half-yellow Mazda badge, a white grille-chrome bar and white alloys. The license plate coincidentally combines nicely with the paint job.
