Besides the discs, 201a includes 17" wheels, fog lamps and some appearance stuff but nothing critical to me so I am wondering if the $1600 is worth it because it would help on resale or if it is just a good deal for the stuff it includes?

The disks are much better than the disk / drum set up on the base car, both to drive, as well as to service. The appearance package essentially turns a base SE into what was a SEL premium package (minus leather for canada as standard). The SE sport or SEL with DCT base packages were much better value in 2012 vs 2013.
