Love the nose and I’m on the tall side. A 500C owner recommended that nose too because of my height. I guess there’s a 5 knot penalty but oh well. I was guessing around $50k for the Yehnert. Is that even in the right zip code?

Find a machine with the nose already on it...but they aren't really an "upgrade" unless you just like the look. If I recall they actually decrease cruise speed.

Does anybody have a swag on what a Yehnert nose is going for these day? The FAA guy I talked to said MD nows owns that STC.

I'm trying to get another physical done but not looking good. The flight surgeons aren't too keen on doing another one with 2 waiver denials in the books. Still hoping though.
