BMW 5 GT is matte white in China

A very sleet and very low BMW 5 GT, seen near a river here in Beijing. The vehicle was painted in matte black and further made pretty by a fat ass Hamann body kit, a black grille, tinted windows, and black & Pink alloys from AF Design. White is doing the 5 GT a lotta good, making it appear slightly smaller than the whale of a car it actually is, size-wise sitting somewhere between the 5 and 7 series.

Chinese Lifan driver Likes it Chinese

Chinese Lifan driver Likes it Chinese

“I love made in China”, seen on an old Lifan 520 near the 5th Ring Road in Beijing. The sticker refers to the island row with Japan, where many angry Chinese suddenly started buying ‘home-grown’ brands instead of Japanese.  Many ordinary Chinese citizens are still very angry about it all, at a moment when high-politics are getting ready to reduce tensions, so there probably won’t be a war.

Kia K5 is matte-mint green in China

A very hip Kia K5 sedan in matte-mint green, seen on a parking lot near a karaoke bar in Beijing. Matte-mint green is a rare color for cars, sadly so, and even more so for the K5, which is a rather boring sedan mostly bought in brown. But this particular K5 is all-but boring!, further sexed up with black rear lights, racy tires, black alloys and tinted windows.
