Just put a deposit on my new 2 UP 60 HO pinapple Spark and single black trailer today! Delivery should be next week and with temps expected in 80's, the many small lakes await a break in! (After waxing and all new accesories are procured :):D

In shopping for a Spark, dealers have been consistent in telling me: interest IS high, supply is limited and the H.O. with IBR seems to be most popular. There is a limit on the number of machines they can get from Sea Doo.

So, the best deal I could get locally without traveling far and wide was: Getting a machine for only $99 off MSRP ($4900) and a new trailer discounted ($800 the MSRP is unknown). Plus TTL. Then, got the dealer to reduce the "freight/prep" pack from $795 that they have placed on all Sparks (WOW! - guess it's cause of the reduced markup on a low cost machine) to $495 that they charge otherwise on all vehicles they sell. Also: 10% off ALL accessories and $20 off labor to install all of 'em ($90 vice $110/hr). Lastly, got the "valued customer card" that all accessories I am ordering (several includes: the manual reverse, a spare trailer tire/wheel, fender protectors, the convenience package, spare key, yada, etc.,) will count towards credits for 10% off of future purchases. So its seems deals on the Spark will be hard to negotiate with limited availability, demand and low cost. I'm used to buying cars at invoice and under :eek:

My time has been spent mostly on an older 2 stroke machine fresh water funning in the Portland/SW WA area mostly on the Columbia River. Lots of small lakes around. I've never been a speed demon and I like a small, nimble, light machine, that's easy to drive, load, etc., and I'm a disabled vet - so free use of state parks and launches too. My doll of a GF and I weigh maybe 265lbs together~, dressed and wet, so I'm hoping the lil Spark can get it done - especially on the mighty Columbia River come summer. If not, the "flash" to 109HP after warranty expires might be in store? :) :D

Looking forward to maintenance tips (I've got a nice shop and tools and am handy but, never really wrenched on a PWC before), and maybe meeting up with some local riders.

So what else should I have/do for my machine and myself? Yea, it's time to call USAA and add an insurance policy and add to my Umbrellla coverage of course? ...thanx

out the door: a base Spark, new single trailer, TTL and all dealers "fees" $6,920.38 (we have a 8.4% sales tax rate in WA- luckily no INCOME tax though :)

Next week about $1K+ in options will be installed and some new accessories purchased so the fun can begin mid-week!

where are you at? I'm "Vancouver"...purch thru Pro Caliber MS, w/o trailer I was $4900 for unit ($99 discount) $495 freight/prep (vice $795 list) and $50 doc fee (vice $150 list) + TTL, guess hair over $6K~. And it's my closest dealer.

rest of deal was $800 +450 + ttl for new Karavan trailer, 10% discount on accessories and 10% off loyalty card that will start with the $1K + of accessories I'm gettin and $20 off labor to install 'em ($90 hr)

probably could've saved a couple to three hundred-ish shopping far and wide and maybe buying trailer on the I net but, didn't want to with the Spark being in such short supply...

my cars/Jeep I worked invoice price Down...LoL...

We're up in Puyallup. Picked them up from Clem's Enumclaw Powersports they were a shade under 6k out the door I shopped around and without driving a couple hours they were the best deal around

Any chance ya'll can post up pics of your invoices? The dealer I'm talking with doesn't want to budge on some of their fees and is also quoting a rough price on a new trailer. Thanks!

So, the best deal I could get locally without traveling far and wide was: Getting a machine for only $99 off MSRP ($4900) and a new trailer heavily discounted (Karavan brand/single black painted for $800 (MSRP is well over a grand). Plus TTL. Then, got the dealer to reduce the "freight/prep" pack from $795 that they have placed on all Sparks (WOW! - guess it's cause of the reduced markup on a low cost machine) to $495 that they charge otherwise on all vehicles they sell. Got $100 doc fees for Spark and trailer "credited" with a $100 gift card for the dealer's parts dept.

Summary:. $6295 + TTL + Accesories at 10% off "out the door". I get $194~ of store credit to use on parts/accesories but, not shop labor.

Also: 10% off ALL accessories and $20/hr off labor to install the manual reverese.

All other accesories to be installed "free". ($90 vice $110/hr).

Lastly, got the "dealer customer/loyalty card" for all accessories purchased -they totaled $964 ($94 of future store credits) These include: the manual reverse, a spare trailer tire/wheel, fender protectors, fender bumpers, registration pack, mooring line, the convenience package, spare key, yada, etc.,)

So its seems deals on the Spark will be hard to negotiate with limited availability, demand.I'm used to buying cars at invoice and under :eek:

So, that's the real story, delivery took almost couple weeks though :(
