Rolf, sorry to say, but for the price range of 3000€ you'll have a hard
time finding anything, even used, that has both the "Cisco" name tag and
the 1Gbit L3 forwarding ability ... especially with all the additional
features ... you can't expect an enterprise, high-end product for a
SoHo/Mid-Range price ...

I second the ASR 1001 option, nice box with lots of performance for
relatively good price, be aware of the limits in BGP (500k prefixes IIRC
?) though ... but as you wrote, you don't need a full table, so that
shouldn't be a problem. Not sure how much of a performance hit the
Netflow will be once you are actually pushing the 1G through the box ...
