    Which dealer if you don't mind saying? I talked to one in particular on Friday, looking at maybe a 4 seat and 2 seat. Was told the great price, and then the fees.... It's always the fees... then it was we only have 2 or 3 left so I should put a deposit down...yeah right..., The wife gave me the go ahead, but my gut tells me to hold off and not impulse buy. 20k OTD is possibly worth it, they were at 19.9k, plus 999 fee, plus TTL, yeah, a lot more than your buddy

    you get what you pay for....... just sayn.....

    Its always tempting to go for the better money deal, but consider whatever you buy, you have to live with. I'd rather sell a kidney to get the better car ;)

    You can't beat Can Am quality..... XRS may not beat a new 2017 XP turbo, but who cares

    The cheap pricing on the 2016 XPT is going to be with the bigger dealers. They scope up the left overs for a much cheaper price and have more wiggle room.

    Just have to negotiate the otd price.

    The X-3 XRS is a badass ride.

    BERTS, plus you qualify for the Polaris gift certificate they mail directly to you. I think with a couple of mods these are excellent machines. Get a Clutch kit from Adam at AirDamn Clutches, a billet Fuel Rail and Fuel Line from RPM and a Radiator from CBR and your ready to have a ton of fun.

    Anyone know whats breaking on the Murray's X3 that they are racing? I keep hearing there are axle issues with X3s. Any truth? Last I saw the murray's on course they were only going half speed at best.

    FB post said they had axle issues. But I don't think they are running stock axles.

    Have not heard of others breaking axles. There are not enough out there to know if it is an issue.

    Yeah I don't want to imply there are "issues" perse, should have rephrased that. I had heard heard there have been some people breaking axles. But of course, a lot of times its just driver lol

    On my demo ride a front axle popped out on one of the units. But considering how people hammered on them it was likely due to driver error.

    I am hoping there is very few issues on the non racing side. It's still way to early for the report cards. Six months to a year we will know.
