They aren't all beige. I have the permanent one and that is blue.
This has been discussed on the forum before and people have managed to get a car registered in their own name without a Residency Certificate but it is certainly true that the people doing the registration expect you to have one. I think they signed a legal declaration saying that they were not permanently resident in Greece so it was not relevant to have a residency certificate but I could be wrong. I certainly bought my first car without a Residency Certificate but that was 19 years ago and I didn't deal with the transaction.
