Cervelo p2 2015

Hey everyone, I'm trying to figure out if there's any way I could upgrade to the di2 groupset with a 2015 cervelo p2? If not, what would you recommend? I just purchased this bike and I would eventually like to participate in the honu 70.3 triathlon next year

a full 11 speed ultegra di2 groupset (internal wire) from a uk supplier is around $1000 to $1100. not sure what it takes to do the external wire. then if there is mechanic cost if you don't do your work (and there is some fussiness with wiring, lengths etc)

It is probably doable, but is what is the end benefit over the shifting you have?

Trying to eliminate the unnecessary energy usage using mechanical shifters vs electric ones... also I've tested a couple of the electric shifters and it is very minimal effort and smoother/quicker response

understand the smooth shifting....but don't get the energy usage angle, it does not take a lot of energy to shift.

Check out the mechanics forum for more help.
