Anyone on here built and flying a CH640?

I have built a 601XL and am now considering a 640 as a group project for our EAA chapter. Now that BasicMed is active, I see people interested in 4 seat experimentals.

I wasn't even aware that the 540 is still in production. It actually looks really interesting.
While I cannot answer your question, I would like to expand on it: Are there any plans to modernize it, like the 650 and 750?
