Not that I know...just wanted to bump up your thread so that others will see it on Monday.

Is there a Bernina dealer to call to ask?

The Activas are being discontinued, not anything in the Aurora line that I know of. I'm not a dealer but that's what my dealer told me.

My dealer had one in the box, price 1999 and it said Close Out in big letters. I thought it must be that its being discontinued. Too bad if it is.

sometimes dealers know the words "close out" or "clearance can motivate a buyer,...but I asked my dealer today so what more can I do?...anyway my husband thinks the sale price of $1799.00 is 1/2 markup,....so I will feel like queen for a day if he actually buys me one!

Yes Queen for a day, or a year. Did you tested it out?

That is a Very. Good. Price. for an Aurora 430. That was MSRP for the 1130/1230 machines, twenty years ago.

That is a good price. Sometimes if that's written on the box it means it might be a floor model. I wouldn't worry about that anyway as I have a 165e that was discontinued quite a while ago and can get parts with no trouble.
