Is this a good price for a provia door?

I am replacing our front entry door with sidelights. We really want external grids (not internal) so to get them in the style of door we want in provia we need to get the signet model. We were quoted $6000 for the provia signet with external grids and two sidelights. Is this a good price?

Alternatively, for about $1000 less I could get a similar style door and sidelights from Millikin Millworks, which I can find little about online but based on one comment on this board they are nothing special.

Thoughts on the price of the provia and whether it's worth the extra $1000 to get the provia vs the Milliken?

I guess my view is not whether the Provia is worth $1000 more than the Millikin, but why you believe you have to spend $6000 to get this type of door. In my area I can guarantee that one can get a really fine door with sidelights for thousands less. How many bids have you gotten for the type of door you want? Is it some unusual size?

Just as a point of reference, take a look at what fiberglass doors with sidelights are going for on eBay:
