    2009 VX Delux vs 2011 VXR

    Hey guys, looking for a machine and have two that I am interested and would like your opinions. What you chose between? 2009 VX or a 2011 VXR? the VX is just under $6k and the VXR is $8500? Both have trailers. The 2011 still has warranty left on it. Is the price difference worth the $?

    Well that depends if you want a slow or fast ski, vxr is the vx with a 1.8l engine. If your into speed which you prob will be ,youll be kicking yourself with the vx and wish you went with the vxr. VXR all the way and you still have warrenty.

    How hard is it to find a VXS seat?

    I kind of realize that the original premise of my post is a bit lame...its like asking would you rather have a V6 Mustang or a V8? But, my question is more around the cost differential. Is the added 2.5K worth the price?

    Also, I have teenagers....the 1.8 seems a little spooky to me.

    Not so sure about resale...from what I have seen the VXs seem to do real well up here. Trick is, people pay all sorts of prices for these when they are new.
