Hi Colleen,

We have all VIPs here at BMC but I have used the Leica in the past at a previous position. We currently have 3 - E300s, 3 - VIP 5s, and 2 - VIP 6s. The VIPs are great and really only need preventive stuff like O rings and lubrication. A service company for us Avantik takes great care of all of that. You can get refurbished VIPs at great prices and they will last!
