Can’t find anything to do with paint codes in the boot but apparently it’s in the first page of the service book. Attached is the sticker in the book but not too sure what the colour code is

I think it would normally say paint or lack in front of the code, the sticker may be in the spare wheel well.

If it's a Porsche colour I think it will be 2D8 or 225, whatever it is, your TT looks great. Some info below on the Audi colours and codes if you're interested.

She must be extremely good looking, as I can't see it being the car TBH. :poke: :lol:

Green is not a good look on any car IMHO, but as the old saying goes "each to their own". :thumbsup:

Apart from the modern "Alpina Green"; now that is something, but only available on Alps
All good things come to those who wait. But I'm really impatient which explains a lot.

Here you go
That looks fantastic, amazing condition it's in. The engine bay and arches all look as new, maybe even better than that.

Did you buy it in that shape, or have you done work on it yourself?

It was a ground up restoration started in 2012 finished in 2015 then stood till I purchased it in 2017 being honest the hard work was done but I got it back to tip top since owning it. Whenever I take it out people are so positive men even boys love to look and ask about it, in fact at a show one day I was parked two cars away from a 80s Ferrari people were all over the TR the guy was a tribal pissed off. It really is my baby I absolutely fell in love with the TR6 as a 17 year old in 1974 and it had to be Yellow. I dread the day I will have to sell it due to old age I am 68 now but still fit so hoping it’s a long way off. This is a pic of how far the restoration went.

Glad you are loving the Cayman it’s a modern car I adore due to the fact of a striking affinity to the Triumph GT6. Well I think so. Keep smelling the petrol :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

It looks incredible, you've done well to find one with all that time and money spent and good to see you're looking after it. :thumbsup:

Funny you should bring up the GT6, it was that car and the 240Z that made me look at the Z4M Coupe in the first place.

I never saw a connection with the Cayman, but now that you mention it the rear haunches are similar.
