Re: intercom cost and best place
Ordinarily I would recommend Autocom but TopGear is no longer distributing the product in the US and I don't know when or whether they will appoint a new US distributor. When Schuberth terminated its US distributor it kept putting off customers and dealers and never (to my knowledge) appointed a new one.
I will say that Autocom has been responsive to inquiries from US customers and it may be possible to get parts and service from across the pond.
[After I posted this reply I wandered over to the BMW Sport Touring forum. A couple of the Autocom principals frequent that board. There is a post saying that Autocom has sold some product to dealers in the US and that they expect to sign up two new US distribution "hubs" after a meeting in early June. If they nail that down I would not have any problem buying from Autocom again.]
Raffy posted that Baehr has terminated its US distributor. I'd have the same reservations there.
My latest Aerostich catalog had a couple of intercom choices. Might be worth a look. I don't have any firsthand experience with the brands they are selling.
Many of these products can be user installed without a great deal of hassle. Search the list and you'll probably find some friends who can help or give pointers.
