    Just from what I've been told, I totally lucked out with the '08 and not having the SC problems, but I would read other threads just to see whats what. This forum is a plethora of information if you look for what you need.

    08+ rxps have alot of updates main one being the supercharger. IMO save a little more and buy an 08. I got a NEW 08 last summer for 8100us out the door minus a trailer. Im sure you could find a used 08 for close to what your willing to spend.

    I think that you will find your sweet spot in the 2005 and 2006 years. 2004 was the first year fort the RXP and with that said those were the mechanics "learn how to repair" machines. I personally never buy the first year of mechanical anything so they can get the bugs out by the following year. You just need to make sure that the hull doesn't have any deep hits and check the oil. Bonus would be to get the VIN and get the records of repairs from BRP. You will notice a prideful spike in price as you gor from the 05 and 06 to the 07 and 08's. The first thing on all of the years is to make sure that the Supercharger washers have been changed out.
