  1. #1 Upgrading Epic W through dealer vs Red 
    Has anyone gone through a dealer to upgrade to DSMC2 Helium or Gemini recently instead of upgrading directly through red? Reason I'm asking is I'm wondering if I can upgrade sooner instead of waiting till May which is what the current red timeline is. I'm in NY as well so I'm wondering if I can save on sales tax too.

    Are there cons to this route?

    Hi,

    I would love to do the upgrade with Abelcine locally if it is possible and wouldn't mind getting it sooner vs later either. Thanks

    Just got off the phone with RED about this. There is no difference. There is a waitlist so the soonest opening is currently end of May. You'll have the same place in line regardless. Going through a dealer is just convenience so you don't have to got to the post office and mail it yourself.
