Thats over 2000 dollars on top of the 6200 mrsp , and for me thats too much , you add the price of a new trailer to that and it gets close to 9000 dollars . Where did the affortability go ??? ... :confused: :confused::eek::eek:

Well, call Broward motorsports ,
and call the keys location of Riva ,
and call North Miami motorsports.
get a quote from all of them, saying you were quoted some inflated pricesand fees from your local shop and want to get a better price on a Spark.

the problem is riva motorsports. not seadoo. the msrp makes sense. its all the other garbage fees you need to avoid.

I hate it when you go to buy stuff and there are all these hidden fees. If it costs $6000, it should cost $6000. What is doc prep? Should you really have to pay $400 for someone to prepare some documents for you? (I am guessing that is what doc stands for)

I bet you can find a better price at a different dealer.

it would probably help if we can get a break down of what document preparation really is, unless someone here knows? The $400 has to be justified some how.

its a bullshit fee that you should argue to have removed. even the 365 assembly. tell them to just give it to you as is. save yourself 365.

assembly and doc prep can definitely be avoided. I'm seriously doubting Sea Doo is going to ship the Spark in ziplock bags for dealer assembly. LOL, most of that nonsense is cosmetic and its something foolish like putting the mirrors on they want $365 for.. hehehh jokers.

Minus that you're left with $7,354. I doubt you're going to get destination or sales tax waived unless you pay with a duffle bag of cash. You could also consider going the 2 up route. When you go 3 up you have no choice but to get the 90 hp HO engine which obviously commands a premium...

agreed. keep negotiating. The destination and sales tax definitely is hard to wave.

Has anyone here had any luck negotiating below MSRP?

do people have Sparks already? Up here all the BRP dealers are switching into full on sled mode. They cart out all the sea doos and replace them with ski doos...

Yes, here in the South they are being sold, as soon as they come in they are snapped up. We are waiting for the ones with the iBr braking system, supposed to arrive in Jan., maybe sooner

Didn't bother with MSRP. I did however get the Shipping, Doc Prep lowered and no Assembly charge. Taxes and Title you can't do anything about. I also got the price of the trailer lowered. Then I also had them throw in the Seadoo Safety Kit extra key and Distress Flag. On top of that they give me 10 to 20 percent off on any accessories or add on kits. So I bought the Quick Ties, Fenders, Bilge Kit and Numbers all at a discount.

These do sell fast but most dealers are willing to work with you on anything but the MSRP.

I do not believe dealers get any cut of MSRP thats why they are adding all the BS fees. I was luck to find a dealer that was only charging a $125 setup fee on top of MSRP.

I don't understand what a doc prep fee is. I just don't think that should exist. Dealers find any excuse they can to add on a fee. It seems to me that those fees should be illegal or something. At least if they are going to charge you extra they should have to own up to it instead of pretending like it is somehow legitimate.
