In Sc ours is capped at 300$ unless its changed since i last bought a vehicle - could have last one i bought was 3 years ago.

Does that powersports dealer know that? Very well might be a miscommunication.

That's awesome it's capped at $300. We are not capped haha 6-11% of purchase price depending on county and city.

Wow, didn't know they got desperate enough for chips to delete XM from the options.

Guess it couldn't be retrofitted later?

Big problem is the whole antenna installation for said XM, it isn't easy and to get the right radio that is coded to the antenna's is another speed bump.

They are bundled together at the factory and so is installed at the same time with the correct embedded codes to work flawlessly at the start.

No trying to be that guy but cant you just stream it from your phone?

I thought the audio quality was pretty bad for music on XM, so definitely wasnt for me.

UTV’s crashing? How much are we talking? Last summer there were selling MSRP+ if you could even find one. Are they 5% below MSRP? Looking to purchase one for my lake place.
You couldn’t buy a new CanAm X3 if your life depended on it 6-12 months ago. In the past month I have seen dealers posting on X3 pages that they have units sitting in stock and ready to roll. I’m guessing that MSRP or less would be easier to come by now. Especially going into winter.

They aren't crashing here about 3 weeks ago i went to a dealership to look at a new yxz 1000 - MSRP is 23,??? and i was quoted almost 27,000 so i told him i would go MSRP and he pretty much laughed at me quoting shipping, taxes and shop fees, needless to say i passed.

Crazy. I bought a brand new, leftover 2018 YXZ in December of 18 for $13,200. Out the door was $15,000 after taxes etc.

I haven't heard anything.
He talked to local dealer and ‘sold out’. He wanted supercab not supercrew and doesn’t like the Tremor colors but I’d want antimatter blue.
Wonder how many Rattlers they’ll make or he’ll have to try to find a dealer order.

I think I'm just going to find my Dad another 2014 F-150. We both still like the old steel body trucks.

I was really planning on waiting the market out because I think it will be drastically different in the next 6 months-1 year and was originally planning on picking up a truck since I had DD duties regulated to my wife’s old civic.

Bambi had different ideas the other morning when she took flight off the front of my car at 60 mph. I think it’s totaled, waiting for insurance adjuster to come look at it, if so I guess I’ll be in the market sooner than expected

That's crazy. I've been doing the same, and in a civic too. Just came back from driving a '22 5.0 6spd... think im going to do it. It was great. They're selling at MSRP now at least.

Long commute and 2 little ones keeps me from buying another mustang but I’d like to eventually. I say you pull the trigger!

Twin Cities Nissan dealer running ads on my A.M. radio station touting 300 Nissans in stock again. Over 2 years since that ad last ran.

If I’m ever bored enough on a holiday weekend to count the number of F150s on a lot.. then remember that number and how it correlates to 3 years ago..

I hope one of the vehicles has some kind of catastrophic parking failure, rolls into me, which then causes me to hit a gas pump, then while on fire I hope I then hit a welding supply store so the compressed gasses explode and blow me into more than 30 pieces so they can count my body parts and compare them to pre Covid parking lot numbers

Lol. I was just thinking the same thing. I have never in my life counted cars on a dealers lot. It’s either full or bare and unless I’m looking to buy, I don’t give a shit.

I haven't counted but there are definitely more cars/trucks on local lots around me then have been there in awhile... they used to just park commercial/fleet trucks.

Also the used lot is "holding the bag" on dozens of 5-10YO trucks with 80-130k miles all priced well north of 30 grand a piece... some in the 40s.
