    I just ordered this horn and will pick it up in three weeks.

    You ordered it, but you're picking it up?!!

    Hopefully you're getting a very good price. I encourage supporting local dealers, BUT only if they stock good horns. If the dealer didn't have several 180/37s in stock to choose from, then they don't deserve extra margin. The street price is around $1450.

    List price was $2,420.00 (before taxes). I paid $1,499.00 (plus tax).

    I didn't want the store display model. They didn't have one in stock, so it is being ordered in. It's the holiday season, that's why it may take up to 3 weeks to arrive.

    Of course, I will inspect it, and try it out before finally taking it home.

    That's a competitive price. Hopefully they'll still have a floor model in when yours arrives. If so, I'd compare how they blow to make sure you get the best one. If the floor model blows better you should take that and get an extra discount if there's some evident wear.

    Good luck with your new horn.

    dcstep,
    I am hoping the store model is still there in 3 weeks. I'll compare the two and take the better one.

    In any case, if I don't like the new horn, I'll get a refund. I'll try to remember to post the results here when I pick it up.
