Any experience of purchasing 'grey market' EOS R?

I was thinking about buying EOS RP for its price and weight,

but when I considered using RF 50, I concluded that RP is not a good option because of its 1/4000 shutter speed limit and, more importantly, its having only EFCS (which would degrade the quality of bokeh at the fast shutter speed).

So now I am considering of buying EOS R instead.

To be honest, I can't justify paying $2300 for EOS R. But the grey market version at Ebay costs much less (around $1700), which seems attractive to me.

I know I would not have 1-year USA warranty, but thinking about the past 10 years, any new camera is not likely to have a problem within a year, so I think it may be alright.

Any opinion or experience of buying a grey market EOS R?
