I have seen those a-la-carte model in the dispay cabinet in Wetzlar, some of them at least. They are... well... depending on the colour nice to downright ugly. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Michel Razafimahefa from Leica Customer Support tried to talk me into buying one several times and pretty persitently but I have stubbornly declined all the time.
With my M8 and M240 I couldn't be happier.
