Thanks for the links :)
I hope to get one with lots of options/acessories from the factory. Head unit will likely get swapped out, as will amp and speakers. May fit a sub. Will want carplay integration so I can use GPS from phone.
It will be getting a full decontamination and 2 stage polish (in the summer!)
Primarily looking at black and blue models.
Wheels will likely get powdercoated black or replaced with ones I get done in black.

I'm changing jobs in a few weeks and have to give up my Company car, will be using the train to cummute now, so new car can be a little more fun :)
