Ocean Blue Metallic is the color according to Porsche. It's just a tad lighter than their navy, which they call Midnight Blue. But it's not as light as Iris Blue (which has hints of purple). And then lighter than that would be Zenith Blue.

Nice 993. Just throwing it out there that you may want to photoshop out your license plate, though it's kinda funny.

Not my plates. Previous owner's before we removed them. No longer valid registration. Good looking out, though.

is it the Touring? GreenFrog will probably smash his MacBook Air if he sees the M5 rims and finds out it's a wagon.

I am looking at getting a BMW or an Audi. Would it be a real tragedy if it were automatic? I have never driven stick before (insert manhood joke here) and do not know how to drive stick. I am guessing these machines are best driven manually.

If you're looking at a new[er] car buy an auto if you don't know how to drive manual. If you want to learn, get a beater and learn on that. I taught myself how to drive manual on an Audi 80 then a BMW 325i, both old beaters. But full as all hell.

Why would anyone care about photoshopping plates?


Your plates are on display for anyone to see every time you drive your car. What could a nefarious internet person do with your license plate number that couldn't happen if a person got your plate number while parked at the shopping center?

Some people on the internet would rather stay as anonymous as possible.

I take it you've never seen the douchebaggery that goes down in the CE forum.

Indeed; car + Plates means a vehicle check. Can get your ID and registered address. If you happen to post a picture or something liked to an account it would be pretty easy to track down all your information within a few hours.

It isn't that the risk doesn't exist in the real world, its just that you might see 1,000 people in a day and piss off 5 of them. On the internet your details remain "forever" and a few poorly chosen words may incur someone's wrath. Probably 1bn people who can speak English and use the internet, gives you a much wider net for picking up stalker-murderer types.

Re-reading that sounds mega paranoid but trust me, nerds are to be feared more than any redneck with a shotgun.
