    Trade?

    Anyone trading a RXT for the new RXT IS?

    Dealer quoted me the following......

    My 07 RXT 55 hours for a 09 RXT IS for $7850 out the door (includes T T L) Seems like a pretty fair deal to me. Anyone else care to comment?

    Could you not sell your ski for more, giving you more money to put towards the is?

    so they're giving you ~$7000 trade in, is that correct? Doesn't sound too bad to me, for the no hassle of just trading it in.

    Also, keep, in mind that you dont pay sales tax on the trade in $. If you were to sell yours and purchase the is you would be paying sales tax on $7000 more.

    Huh, only $140/hour. And I thought gas was expensive.

    Yea, that's what I'm thinking. Plus I wouldn't have to pay 7% sales tax on $14,999.

    You cant just count the hours on the ski you also must take into consideration all of the fun you have hangin out with your buds on the beach or island that you would not be able to do without a pwc or boat. Just because he only road it 5o+ hrs doesnt meen he only had 50+ hours of fun because of owning it.

    I don't think an IS ski is going to provide any more fun when hanging out with buds on the beach. But I think that you can calculate how much they cost per hour of riding, especially when traded in for the next model after 1 year of ownership. If you have lots of dough then don't worry about it..

    I was just making up some numbers, to illustrate thats a lot of money to upgrade. To be more specific and less of a pain - I recommend keeping the RXT.

    The IS may cushion your butt nicely though, driveumhard you ride offshore right?

    Sorry to be no fun.

    I ride in all conditions. I love the 255 motor! Very strong!! I'm pretty sure the IS will not be as fast as my RXTX but l like all the new bells & whistles on the 09 IS.
    Plus If I wait another year the 07 RXT will be worth much less IMO.
