I feel ya and wish you the best of luck. I just got a very lightly used Eisenmann Race w/ pipes after looking for an exhaust for a LONG time. The $2k threshold was my highwater mark and refused to pay more. What your doing now was going to be my next move but I found what I wanted on this forum and got a sweet deal. Good luck bump.
