I picked option #22, but you can't go wrong with Newport. I've gotten so many compliments on my color in the sun.

White, so you can be cool like me.

BTW, anyone know where I can get a manual transmission for a 99/early 900 (up to 1993) for cheap?

They will probably be more like the steel wheels seen in the second photo, which can be powdercoated any color.

The 4x140 bolt pattern leaves me with VERY few options, and the fender wells limit those options even more. There are the Enkeis as seen in the voting photo, but they are small (13") and I was trying for at least 14". There are also some 15" versions but they have a bad offset (~+26) which causes them to not fit under the fender well.

You can read more about the wheels early on in the other thread, there were some good discussions about wheels/tires in there.


As for the "Other" paints:

Purple - No
All silver/grey - Too common right now, and blends in too much.
All WRB - I've seen some older cars like this with a WRB paint job, and it just doesn't work for me.
"Classic" Colors - The 70's dreary colors don't look that great, I tried several itterations via photoshop and nothing really poped out. And as for "classic", the Grabber Orange and Mexico Blue actually came from the 70's!

You know, I'm not normally a big fan of whites but... oh wait, no, I think that came out wrong. I actually voted for #1 - with the black trim, it looks very classy.

I voted white, but have you thought about Porsche Ice Green Metallic? I think it would look great.



It's almost silver, with a green hue.

Edit: Plum Crazy Purple might actually look good.

Aspen white and Championship white are very close to being the same, its the Satin white that is different.
