Yeah, i paid just a few $$ under 1,800 for my new 09 Demo 8 II frame from a dealer with the lifetime warranty. If the new 08 frame was offered to me from a dealer i would pay $1499 MAX, if it was from a local person or online $1100-1200.

Those things retail for like 22, shops pay WAY more than 11 or 12 for that stuff. ANY deal at a shop is a good deal, shops operate on pretty low margine.

18 sounds a tad steep, but not out of the ballpark

Sounds about right. Keep in mind that a big portion of the premium for a frame from a shop is the lifetime warranty. The warranty applies only to the original buyer, so the second-hand value of the frame is significantly lower.

I am just saying I paid under $1800 for a new 09 frame from the local shop, now I do a good bit of business with them, so that might have something to do with it also.

Are you getting it from a shop or from another source?

There is an 09 Demo 8 II frame on ebay right now with a staring bid of 1800 and a buy it now of 2000......that can save you some money you would pay in taxes if the frame wasent from someone local, if its your size.

That exact frame just sold on pinkbike for $900, new in the box. I wouldn't be surprised if its the same one.
Pricing is the reason I don't own this frame yet. I wouldn't pay more then 800 for used or 1100 new. Used bike,especially downhill specific have been beat. Thats what they were built for.
