I would have preferred to buy locally as well but, that wasn't to be. The local dealer is only 8 miles from the house and 6 from the storage yard. After we had ordered our 3075 I got a call from the local sales guy. He said they had just received a 3075 and wanted us to come and take a look at it. I told him too late that ours had already been ordered and would be in in 2 weeks. He asked where we bought it and then told me that could have beat the price. I told him but you had 2 chances to make deal with us and didn't even come close. His next question was "So, who do you think is going to service it for you?". What a sleaze bag!
I am sure that their service department will take my money regardless of where I bought it. However, if their sales office is constantly playing games I am reluctant to trust their service department.
