$1800 sounds like list price, but multiple shops have been selling Ultegra Di2 groups including brifters, RD, FD,
chainsets, brakes and cables, battery, charger and enough wires and A/B junctions to connect all for $1100-1200.
This will change for awhile with the 8000 series replacing the 6800 series but by this time next year similar
offerings for under $1500 should be available. Meanwhile the remaining 6870s should available for the next 6-12
months as "NOS".

Wouldn't you know it, I checked with bikesdirect and I don't have the right battery. It's not worth it to me to have to buy a $120 battery and the $140 Bluetooth thingamagig just to let it shift for me. I have the SM-BTR2 and I need the BT-DN110. Bummer.

did they not send you the right battery? Are they going to send the right one?

I'm pretty sure I will have to buy it. The battery that came in it will not work with e-tube.
