Default Lindner seeking life extension to 16,000 hrs for Grob?

Does anyone know whether Lindner is actively seeking a life extension inspection procedure for the Grob 103 to extend its life to 16,000 hours?

Last I heard, they had no interest in going through that effort.

At present the only lifelimited gfrp glider to have its life extended
above 12,000 hours, is the ASk21. Up to 18,000 hours. I
understand the procedure was costly and complex, and adds to
the company liability.
