New bike or new pricey group(campy record)?

A little while ago I lost my job at Medio where I met most of the people here and the reason I started cycling to begin with. No big deal, I can get another job. I got another position in about 2 weeks but it was not ideal so I kept looking. After one week of looking I got an awesome position at Cisco so I quit my current non-ideal job to start the next Monday. That Friday Cisco called me and said there was a process problem with getting the funding approved for the position and it was gone.gone. I had to go back to my current employer and ask for my job back. Grrrr. They were very kind and let me keep it. I kept working for them and hoped that Cisco would get it together and call me back. I asked my wife if I got the Cisco job if I could get another bike and she said yes. THEN IT HAPPENED! I got the job and now more importantly I get to choose a new bike!

I recently bought a Pinarello Paris and it has DA on it, but I have permission and the means to spend a wheelbarrow full of cash on some new bike stuff.

What would you get? Campy super record for the Pinarello? DI2? or just a whole new bike with SRAM?
My team is getting new Blue AC1 SLs and that is an option.


Look at my poor fendered Pinarello.
