Bike paint schemes are usually different for each component level and often change from year-year. I did a Google image search for 'Giant TCR Carbon' and looked through the results until I saw the exact match for the paint scheme on your bike.

It seems to be 2012 Giant TCR Advanced 3 as sold in the UK.



You will probably have trouble returning it to the exact component spec it was originally configured with as Giant used many in-house brand components (wheels, bars, post, stem in this instance; although you have the latter two) and the 2012 Shimano groupsets will not available, you will be able to outfit it with comparable level components of course.
