ive eliminated black blue and grey and red and yellow - pretty much down to orange, carrara white and One of the silvers - I actually like Rhodium better than GT but I think Im pulling the Trigger on Orange....

Still have a month or so to decide but Orange is what I wanted from Day one - Orange with Glass Roof ......

People are going to know it's my car and I love that!

As everyone says, color is so subjective. The TT/TTS are perfect cars to get a wild, bright, vivid colors. They look awesome with the black accents. Get what you want, or you will always have in the back of your mind that you "settled".
Its tough, I am having a heck of a time right now deciding on color for a new GTS.
As the previous owner of a very vivid Mexico Blue TTS, I can say that you will never be incognito and always get attention while out, so make sure that will not bother you.

Sick color, however from recent experience, there was LO car like this at JAck Daniels Porsche. It sat there for over 16 months. Sticker on the car was close to 174K USD. They bit at my offer of 135k. Mind you, it had @ 100 miles, but I could not get it outta my head that they bit so quickly and the car was sitting on the lot for that long.

Food for thought.

It's possible that LO on a TTS isn't a match for the potential buyer. Even myself if I wanted a TT I'm not sure I'd go with such a bold color. LO is great for raw snarling cars, fits their personality in my opinion. I definitely do not like LO if the trim is not all black. I saw it on a 911 that still had silver bits and it didn't work in my opinion.

Do it! I think it's a perfect color for the TT. Too many people choose the safe colors.

This ^^^. Many of the guys on the GT3 forum refer to lava orange as salmon. So if your concern is resale, keep in mind that while some may like it, many do not.

I agree!!! It looks way better in person than it does in photos, especially in different lighting
