    You know in Dubai if you have a dirty car you get a ticket $150... pretty strange law.

    I'm not sure but I think there might be a law like that in Japan too. Definitely to dented body panels, you can get cited and even have your plates taken away til your car conforms again. It's why all the cars here have pristine bodywork, they have to.

    I still haven't washed my car since you commented on how dirty it was. It's even dirtier now :embar:

    It's hard to have the motivation to clean it when you're only driving it three days out of the week.

    You can get one in Denmark for your license plate not being readable from 20m away.


    You can also get a fine for driving in a car with sharp edges, so if you are missing a bumper and your beams are exposed = fine.

    I believe the law that requires dent-free bodywork actually drove the aftermarket to make those custom fenders and bodywork commonplace, likewise 'face changes' where a first-generation Mercedes gets updated to the facelift model by way of a combination of OEM headlights and hood, and then maybe aftermarket bumpers and fenders. Common for like, the SL where they did that big facelift mid-cycle. It's quite common to see luxury cars over here with the entire parts catalog of like, Lorinser or something, and I suppose they might be cars that have been in minor fender benders and rather than going back to OEM, they just fix everything up with aftermarket stuff and sell the cars off. My neighbor had a Bentley GT-C with full Mansory kit, and I suspect it may have been something like that, why would one take off good fenders on a new Bentley normally?

    Your car was filthy, and it's still that way? I'd go several days with a dirty car, not months. :embar:

    I don't like seeing dented cars, so I can get behind this law.

    It's real, there's apparently 3000 idiots, who have wild animals as pets in Dubai.
