There are a lot of strange cars driving around China, but it seems there's a limit on just how ostentatious a ride can be.
The Z4's modified paint job is apparently "officially not allowed." The car violated a few other regulations. It had no license plates, "extra LED-lights," and glowing rims, all of which are also apparently banned.
The owner faces a fine of 500 yuan, about $79. According to Car News China, if the Z4 is impounded a second time, there's no getting it back. Mind you, with no license plate, how do you prove it's yours anyway?
