Oh oh. That doesn't make sense according to post #1 above.

The "ZF" indicates a manual transmission, right (e.g., Type ZF S5D 320Z)?

According to the Bentleys (if I read it right), all manuals have a YELLOW sticker or (as I just found out doing this research) an ORANGE sticker (page 200-4).

However, automatic transmissions, according to my read of the Bentleys, seem to all start with an A (e.g., A5S 325Z). The green sticker, according to my understanding, is reserved for automatics.

How can you have a manual transmission with a green sticker?
