Considering the comp Di2 vs expert, I don't feel I need the adjustability of the further shock 2.0 and prefer the raw carbon look on the comp model. Seems main other difference is the c38 wheels which I would just add to the comp after.

Am I missing anything else I should consider between the two befor making my decision?

I believe the Expert FutureShock 2.0 has the Damper, the 1.5 (on the Comp) Does not
and as you said, the wheels

There is a future shock 2.0 retrofit kit that you could install on the expert if you feel like you need it later. R470's are easy to flip and decent rims. The hubs, however, are complete trash.

Are you sure about the future shock 2.0 retrofit kit? I asked about one last week and the dealer didn't even have a number to order one.
The expert has the same frame but upgrades to the S-Works fork. I would get the expert as the fork/shock upgrade, along with other upgrades provides a better value. It's a great spec that you could ride as is for years.

We did a retrofitting last week from a 1.0 to a 2.0. I don't have the part number handy but we had to call our rep to figure it out.
