If the ME3600X is much too expensive, it's possible your expectations
for pricing aren't realistic.

Selective QinQ is pretty new, and tends to be found only in provider
type equipment. If you can live without that, "normal" (non selective)
QinQ is offered on most switches today. In that case several different
Extreme switches might be of interest.
