Trek Emonda Sl6 Vs Sl8 ( Same price right now)

Hey guys, first post and first major bike purchase.
I have been looking for my first road bike and want to "do it once and do it right"
I was looking at the Emonda Sl6at a few local shops and found one shop that is selling the sl6 and sl8 for the SAME price. Usually about $2k difference. No defects or anything, they just said its a current sale, likely due to the sl8 not moving off the shelves that quickly.
The main difference is the sl6 has Ultegra and the sl8 had scram red.
Its my understanding that though the scram red is thought to be a higher tear- some actually enjoy the Ultegra much more.
What all should I be considering here and is it a no brainer to just go with the sl8?
