Mystic Blue is a great choice so feel reassured. Now regarding the xi....I don't know CT at all, but your fun factor will go up without the AWD, especially with the manual tranny, IMO. I originally was going to get the AWD too, but later punted for the sports pack with a set of good winter tires and rims. The xi won't be a "bad" ride, just not as fun.
