After fretting all week about price I finally just broke down tonight, went down to my local dealer and bought a Large Egg with all the trimmings for 10% off retail. They had Large Egg tables 1/2 off so I bought that instead of the nest/mate. With high WA tax included everything was $900. I am now faced with the daunting task of assembling the beast. Any advice? the shopkeeper suggested a bead of high heat silicone around the inside of the band to prevent slipping. Has anyone done this? What else should I look out for? besides hernias I mean.[p]Thanks- You guys are the main reason I went with an EGG!
