what suspension do I have?

Hi all, I have a 2001 boxster S that was ordered from the factory when new by the original owners. It is highly optioned with 24000 in factory extras, including M030 suspension. I have the original "window" sticker. The problem is that the coloured dot on the struts (all 4) are brownish orange and the front springs have a yellow and white dot on them (I haven't found the rr's yet). My Bentley manual says M030 6-speed are orange with brown and red on strut . This matters because I'm about to install Eibach coils for the lowering (which I already have) or buy the ROW 030 kit from Suncoast. Either way I would like to predict the outcome of the change. It is a Canadian car and i'm wondering if I in fact have ROW M 030 and not NA M030 as I've been led to believe. ps. does anyone have some lightly used PSS9's for sale?
