Cost for replacement shutter in D800E?

Hi,

I'm shooting more and more time-lapse with my D800E so am more aware of the shutter rating of the camera body (200,000 in the D800 in believe). Rather than buy another body just to use with TL work I telephoned Nikon UK to ask how much a replacement shutter would cost should I reach 200,000 shots. Unfortunately he refused to tell me and said I had to send the damaged camera in first. Obviously this was a speculative query and the camera isn't damaged yet. I don't particularly want to destroy my shutter just so that I can get a ball-park figure on a replacement shutter so does anyone out there have any ideas? I've seen D3 owners mention figures like $300 (but no UK prices which normally seem to be higher for some reason). I'm guessing it would be a similar price for the D800...
