In my area I have seen $1299.00. The 4.2 for around $1999.00. You get alot more with the 4.2 for quilting. It has auto snips, auto thread tension, auto presser foot lift, stop/start button and bobbin sensor.

I test drove one recently when I bought my Ambition 1.5 and it was also $1299 and the 4.0 was selling for $1900.

I liked the lighting on the Ambition better and it was a ltitle cheaper ($1099) so I bought it.

If I were a sewing machine, all I would have to do is lift up my foot and all my tension would be gone.

Hello,

I purchased the Pfaff Expression 3.2 a couple of months ago. I paid 1500 cash out the door. My dealer had it for 1699.00 and they were firm, but relented to a lower price because I did not use a credit card. Since there are only two Pfaff dealers near the Twin Cities, they seem to price the machines a bit higher than elsewhere. (Lots of Viking and Bernina dealers around here)

I have used this machine for a couple of projects so far and have been happy for the most part. It is great for cottons, lightweight fabrics, lighter weight knits... However, there is no pressure foot adjustment. I did not realize this when I purchased the machine. So trying to sew a heavy wool coating is problematic because I could not loosen the presser foot pressure. Even with IDT, the wool kept puckering. I went to my Janome 6600P to sew the coating and did not have any issues. I suspect quilting on this machine would be problematic as well.

Overall it is a good machine and I am glad I bought it. The IDT is great. I like the actual push buttons on the machine instead of the flush keys that the Vikings have.

I hope this helps.
