Any recommendations or am I better off buying at Lowe's? I'm specifically looking at a gas cooktop to be installed (don't want to mess with my granite countertops; plumbing is there, but currently a 30 inch electric ceramic cooktop in place). While I'm at it, what do you all recommend as minimum BTU burners? I've always had electric (booo) and I'm excited to get a gas cook top for better cooking. Seems 12500 BTU is standard but I like a Bosch one with 17K BTU but don't know if that's overkill.

Neither Lowes, Home Depot, Best Buy nor Sears have a showroom that carries those higher end appliances to actually look at them, especially not with black finish. I'd like to look at those things before buying....

Try Gold Star on 75 between Belt Line and Arapaho; I've never been but I've heard great things about it.

I bought my Kitchen Aid dual fuel range with a 15k BTU burner at Sears. They have freestanding appliance stores that have much more selection of high-end appliances than the mall locations. And if you time it right, they also have fabulous sales!

You really only need one high power burner. I use ours to boil water quickly, or to cook on a wok, but it goes too high for most other needs, and the "normal" burners are better for that.

Bestbuy in southlake carries the Vikings range and some other higher-end. Lot of the big box stores have decentralized mgmt so it depends on the community around. I cannot imagine you will not find higher-ends at HP / UP area as well...

The Great Indoors used to carry all the high end stuff, but they are closed now. However, they were owned by Sears, so I'd be surprised if there wasn't at least one Sears in the area that has that some of that stuff in stock.
