The individual colors are great, Tanzanite or Azurite would be worth the $1950 to me.

Looking at the interior options, Cohiba is sharp, but I'd do the Cloth Leather option and pocket the $3500.
Sakhir can seem bright in the sun, but in the slightest shade it gets pretty dark. Gray is nice for sure, but I'm all grayed out. Had the turbo for 3 years, still have the LR4, and even the Miata is a bit of a grayish silver. The eGolf is also silver. Plus, my wife loves Sakhir so I'm running with it. I was very tempted with Tanzanite even for $2k, but it's just too dark. You have to have direct sunlight to make it look blue.

Also, going with cloth saves $4.5k.
