By the way, if I take OTM to be Ocean Turquoise, what's the M? Metallic?
Yes, that's the way I've seen it abbreviated more than half the time. I'm not sure where the metallic look really is--seen it in person, yet to notice it. I have seen many, on this forum and others, simply write it as "OT," though I'm not sure which is official.
But that being said, Ocean Turquoise is my next color--thinking jaguar though. It looks so good with the mint guard--

I'd be torn, though, as I would like to keep it stock, yet I wouldn't mind a nice red tort guard to really give it the look.

I thought OTM was "Other than Mexican" like in the movie "Born in East LA!"
