I was in your position a few weeks ago and went through Expobar Office Leva.
A fine machine albeit a little rough around the edges in terms of cosmetic finishing.
A very fair price imo for an E61 HX that is as capable as machines $3K+
I purchased new from CoffeeARoma.
No PID which many will claim is important, but I prefer the lack of electronics. My research suggests the machine should last 10+ years without any major $ spent, the typical issues around 10 years are minor $50 replacement parts that are user replaceable which means no delivery of the machine to a workshop and no downtime.
