Tern Link C8 Handlepost Upgrade

So I purchased the Tern Link C8 and saw that most of their other bikes have the Andros stem with the option to adjust their handlebars for an aggressive seating position which I like. I was about to buy the Andros stem but then realized it's not compatible with the C8 because it doesn't have the T-BAR PHYSIS HANDLEPOST which is required. And it doesn't look like I can purchase that handlepost to upgrade it...at least in the USA. I was just wondering if upgrading the handlepost is even possible.

You can buy directly from HERE. Free global shipping I believe. But by the time you purchase the handlepost, Andros, and new handlebar (current bar may not be compatible with Andros), you're upwards of $200. Maybe easier to sell/return the bike and purchase the D8. Hindsight and all that...

Alternately, you can get the Aber Hallo Stem, also from THOR USA for about $50 shipped. It won't give you as much range as the Andros stem, but it's the same idea.

Yeah I was actually thinking of trading it in for the D8...but like you said about the costs...I may just stick with what I have or check out thorusa like tds101 suggests.

Thanks guys!
