How can I know the color code or name of my Boxster?

Im buying express paint for my 2005 Boxster to do some touch up.
How can I tell which color is my car?

http://www.expresspaint.com/productcart/pc/step3.asp?sortType=ASC&sortOrder=colorSwatch&page=1

Im thinking is Porsche Kristalsiber Metallic
SKU: PORSCHE-A7W

But not 100% sure.
Here is a pic of my car

Could also be Porsche Sandweiss
SKU: PORSCHE-R9A

There should be a sticker on the underside of the front hood. It will detail all of the options that your car came with (do a search on the boards to see the key for these codes) and it should also list your paint code.

This came up when I ordered side vents to match the car color from BumperPlugs. Mine has no sticker under the hood or anywhere else that I could find either. Seems some do and some don't. Mines a US car.

If you have your owners manual and warranty book - there's a sticker on the inside of one of them (forget which) that lists all of the options ect. It will also list the paint code.

Yes, take the VIN to the dealer - they can bring up and print everything re your particular car (i.e., options, interior color, exterior color, etc.).

Paint code...

I found my paint code sticker on my '98 under the front hood on the left (driver's side) wall of the trunk under the carpet... I had to unscrew the carpet and fold it back to get to it...
