    Sea-Doo buyers remorse?

    I just did a phone deal on a new '07 SD GTI SE 155 for around $8,200 - pretty decent price, I think. Now I'm looking around the net and see where any number of retailers are selling leftover '07 FXHO's for around 8.8k - 9k.
    Is the Yammi that much of a step up from the GTI to be worth another $800? What am I getting besides better looks and more luxury?
    This dealer also sells Yamaha, would it be worthwhile to throw myself on his mercies and see if they would match a Yammi price? Ha anyone seen a new FXHO for even less?

    Give RIVA Yamaha a call. In '97 I actually got a GP1200 with a stage II kit installed plus the cost of the trip for aboutwhat I could buy a stocker in Houston. This was toward the end of the season. I paid all fees and taxes in Texas, but after it was all said and done, I actually spent about the same as a stocker, but I got the stage II components and a free road trip out of the deal.

    In 2000, I bought my GPR on the phone from Parker Yamaha in AZ. I had the GPR shipped to Group K for a Sleeper II installlation. I drove up there, rode it all day on the Colorado, then brought it home and registered it in Texas, and it cost me a little over 400 more than what I could get the stocker in Houston.

    I heard back then that some dealerships in Mississippi have some really good deals as well. They do volume business, and therefore can afford to sell them cheaper. Yamaha from what I understand makes up the money loss by giveing out bonuses for high volume sales at the end of the year. It has been a long time, but may be worth your while to look into this option.
