Still looking for an Archer II or Dakota

I've been watching the usual aviation sites for a plane, but nothing that is worthwhile or has what I am looking for.

I'm looking for either an Archer II or a Dakota with TTAF in the 3xxx range. Engine hours are irrelevant, so long as price reflects an overhaul if needed. Specifically, I'm looking for updated avionics, such as a GNS530 or GTN650/750, GNX345, at a minimum. The better the avionics, the more I expect to pay, all within reason. If the plane has the original stack, I expect to pay significantly less as I will have to put in a lot of $$$ to update.

I prefer a Dakota, but will not turn away the right Archer.
