All points on the Conti jugs, accessories and starter boondoggle vs the Lyco equivalents are indeed noted, I have written the same thing myself many times before. I was thinking more along the lines the Cirrus airframe would be much cheaper to mx. The avionics I didn't think about. And you're correct, in the Cirrus you don't have the choice to insulate yourself from consumer grade overpriced shenanigans. Thank you for your input.
