When I approached the vehicle a man popped up from behind the white minivan and asked me whether I wanted to buy the Kia, which was owned by his friend. So I inquired about the engine, and he laughed, and I passed.
A Shuanghuan SCO SUV, Spotted in China in the Dongba area in far east Beijing. The SCEO tries very hard to be a BMW X5, with a complete changing-car kit fitted, including a BMW grille and BMW badges all over. Best however are the X5G000 license plates, showing this owner really went the whole way.

An electric scooter with a Louis Vuitton mudflap, Spotted in China in the Sanlitun embassy district in Beijing by Reader Joachim C., thank you for the photo! The flap, a rather large example, is attached to the back of the frame covering the rear wheel, and almost hits the ground.

Flaps like these go for about 50 yuan in China, and they come with every print imaginable. The anti-cold wind quilt covering the front of the scooter, keeping the legs and arms warm, is also very hip, in purple with a white and red alphabet.
