Where did you buy your full eTAP groupset?

I'd like to hear from those who have bought the full (not 6-piece upgrade) eTAP groupset, particularly those who bought within the last three months or so. I'm researching options now and I'm finding that the full groupset seems to be of limited availability compared to the upgrade version. It doesn't help that none of the UK sites are shipping SRAM to the US now. Not necessarily looking for price paid, though if you care to share I'd appreciate that.

Haven't bought, but mostly have been watching ebay for the 6-piece set. Have seen some full groups posted there. I've seen people claim they get the 6-piece set for USD$1200 or so, that may give an idea of typical vs MSRP.

I've been looking at the 6 piece also. Bike24 & Starbike of Germany appears to ship to US. Their prices are around the $1200 range. You may have to pay customs also, so not a huge savings. Worth keeping an eye out, esp. if the Euro/USD gets a bit better. If I were you, I'd go for the upgrade and just add your choice pieces to complete. From what I have seen, you are limited in choices when you get the complete groupset.

Thanks for the replies, Scott and Jerry. I've pretty found so far what you guys have. No one seems to have a full groupset available now with all the options. I'm guessing I'm going to have to piece it together and probably not all at once. I'm a bit leery of buying new off Ebay, but if the price is right...
