    If the Sc goes, which they do- then the problem with the warranty is that many dealers are not repairing the machine properly.

    If you do get the RXP, then you need to take early steps to bulletproof the Sc and keep it maintained- then you should be ok.

    Lots of info here... search, my friend.

    get the RXP.... and whatever price you buy it for... add $150

    that $150 will be the cost it takes to make the supercharger alot more reliable by removing the stock ceramics and installing metal components that will not blow apart causing serious internal engine problems...

    (it's like $90 if you do the whole job urself, 150 is the price "installed")

    act now tho... that 3-year warranty from Seadoo this year is niceeee huh? only for a limited time... do you have a boat show up there now or something?

    too slow... a 155HP RXP is a little too "entry level" for me.... lacking that monster supercharged acceleration

    I want to ride the 155hp RXP just to get a feel for how big the difference is.

    just ride a 155HP GTI SE... about 1 mph difference between a 155 RXP and 155 GTI ... same acceleration

    i used to own a 1st generation phoenix hull (2003 GTX 4-tec) with 155HP.... a 215 in the same hull is WORLD of difference... and now with the new lighter phoenix hulls who knows

    i'm interested to hear how the 07 line-up runs when more people get them on the water...
