Water heater price - am I getting hosed?

Location is Chicago suburbs. Bradford White 40 gal, 6-year warantee, new style safety system to prevent combustion of external vapors. They quoted $822 full install and removal (haul away) of old unit. They told me that the new style required is the reason for the high price. This sounds like a marketing course graduate to me. I agreed because I've not got the time to shop around and the family will get very ornery with no hot water. I just feel like this is way over the top, price-wise. Am I just out of touch?
