True, the sapphire is true black and the carbon has blue flecks and either looks black or dark, dark, blue depending on the light. I wanted Oyster/Black interior and was open on exterior, so took what the dealer had in stock without much thought. I was happily surprised to see the complexity of the carbon black and am VERY happy that I ended up with it vs. the Sapphire black, but it is ultimately personal choice. I agree, that you need to see them in person to appreciate the difference.
