Color Poll - How much discount to take a color combo that wasn't your first choice?

We used to deal with a leasing company that offered fantastic prices, but often the price varied with the demand for the color combination. Would you take a color combo that wasn't your first choice to save a buck or two? (In this case, I'm not saying to take a color you hate, but perhaps your second or third choice)

If you are going to post, please let us know if you took a color that wasn't your first choice, and whether or not you regretted it later.

I'll start off: In 2012, We took delivery of a Silver/Truffle Honda Odyssey EXL. Our first choice was grey/grey. The monthly lease for the Silver was $389 (we were given a choice of Powder Blue or Silver at this price), while the grey combo was $415. So we saved $26 x 36 months = $936 for the term of the lease. The Silver color grew on us, and in the end, we actually preferred it to the Grey/Grey combo.
