    I think it is graphite, just in dark lighting and a bad photo... Haven't seen any PTS cars delivered yet.

    Yes, the entire picture is very dark. Agate should have more metallic reflections as well.

    To be honest, I never considered that Graphite is metallic, not a flat color. To me, it has very little reflection in it. 

    If you see Graphite under the bright fluorescent lights of a dealer, you'll see many metal flakes of various colors.

    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Graphite suits the GT3 much better than standard 911s / 718s, where it comes off as a bit dull.

    Well, he still seems to attract lots of viewers, so he must be doing something right (or the lack of alternatives plays into this hands Smiley).

    750miles on my car now. Love it. Driving the car is so addictive. The sound is just nuts. Noise from the brakes is gone finally. 

    It does bring the giggling side out in you just like shmee in his video.

    I took delivery on Oct 25th and only have 75 miles on it. I’ve been out of town and have not had a chance to drive. But I think about it everyday and can’t wait to get back to drive it. It’s addictive because it’s so much fun to drive.

    850miles now and that’s just driving around on my favorite local route. Cold here so can’t really get the tires that warm but it’s better grip wise that I expected.

    I don't know it is that most of these guys - like Schhhhmeeeee - are very focused on them self rather than on the subject, that they present in their videos, that makes it difficult to watch them.

    They seem to have their fanbase though...

    Same with Autogefühl (a YouTube car reviewer): "Welcome to Autogefühl with Thomas...". Every time I listen to Thomas, I get ear cancer. Smiley I get it, he is German but he uses some English expressions which are just not correct, it is as if he translates German directly into English and it sounds horrible. Some may say that this is actually his (Thomas) charm but for me, listening to him (I am not English native speaker) is a pain in the a.., honestly. Also, his reviews are kind of boring, very detailed with nice videos but boring.

    Don't get me wrong: I don't know if I could do it better but considering the fact that he makes money with this videos and runs this whole endeavor as a business, I'd expect more. If he cannot deliver the less boring stuff (drag races, drifting, more "dynamic" driving scenes), he can hire a professional to do that for him. No problem.

    On the other hand: I can not complain - it is for free...

    One thing that I find strange and I dislike is very rude and impolite comments on shows that are for free and all you need to do is to close your web browser in order to not watch the stuff.

    As you said RC: A lot of people like Shmee and that is fine with me. 


    Re: OFFICIAL: New 991.2 GT3

    Well I'm not going to go to YouTube and write a bad comment on the video because I don't dislike the guy, don't think he is a bad guy either, so wish him only good things, but regardless of free or not I find him in the videos annoying to listen to for some reason, and also don't really connect with him probably because the focus of his videos is not really what I'm interested in, so I just pass on them.

    Agreed. I do not like those insulting comments, some not only being rude but outright insulting. This is free content, enjoy it or just don't watch anymore. Smiley

    As you said RC: A lot of people like Shmee and that is fine with me. 

    The only thing worrying me is that young people/kids often think that by spotting cars and making some videos about them, you can actually afford to buy these cars. Three(!) kids from my son's class opened a YouTube channel about cars and have been arguing with my son (who I taught not to believe everything he reads and watches on the internet...) because they really think they can have millions of subscribers and then afford the cars they love. SmileyI get it, a little bit of initiative isn't bad but kids are often misled by YouTube videos, especially if their YouTube stars lie about their financial background and/or don't mention that their parents, who support them, are loaded.

    That's the kind of virtual reality that young people cannot seem to resist.  My nephew thinks he can be Steve Jobs and my niece thinks she can making a living arranging flowers on You Tube.

    Smiley As long as parents keep an eye on this "career" and try to steer kids into the right direction, I have no problem with that. Unfortunately many kids use YouTube without parental guidance, probably also because the parents don't care or don't understand what is going on there.

    You might be onto a bussiness opportunity here Christian!
    How about car reviews by kids from their point of view? You could make this pretty cool if you determine the style well, offering something unique (at least, I am not aware of any existing channels like this).

    I had this idea before but I do not want to "expose" my kids and it would take a lot of time and school is more important. Smiley
