For the record, I totally get that perspective. I’m buying a PWC this spring and it’s because whenever we go out there are 2 pontoons and a speedboat out there already. We’ll all goof on the PWC and I can give the speedboat driver a break from towing the tube if he wants (buying a powerful 3 seater that can tow)
hell yeah. I want to buy at least 1 PWC this spring. probably get one around 4-5k and it’ll be a modern 4 stroke. Should be a blast.
Building things is fun, I get that, but man at 3k I can have a lot more fun on something that isn’t this.
I mean I get that. but if you build it yourself and this is the result after 3k, I don’t think it was a good investment.
I do in fact have a Capri RS! It’s an 82 5.0 V8 with a 4 speed manual that’s in the process of being set up for RallyX.
Basically, it has one more zero on it than it should to be REALLY COOL. If this was 300 bucks I’d be like - awesome I’m gonna check that out.
Yep. If it was 300 bucks it would be great. at 3,000 - that extra zero puts this in the NOPE column.
I get that, but I’d rather buy something actually fun than build something boring.
lol, pretty sure that’s when he wants to be contacted. but I hear you if I can’t party on the weekends - I’m out.
OK how about this then?
Question. Why would you build a little electric wooden boat for 3k when you could buy a couple used PWC for basically the same cash? Even less if you just want 1. All of them will be faster than this thing.
Here’s a Kia Dealer doing it right!
I assume you’re driving a G80, this is built off the G70 platform. Smaller.
Fantastic work man, Love me some old Mercury.
Just going off my experience, where I have a major automotive company (who shall remain nameless...) that requires me to include it in any MSRP I list. We also have a disclaimer/footnote that explains what IS and is NOT included in MSRP.
because he asked for a total price and they didn’t give it to him. They gave him a “Due on Delivery” number. I also think they are scamming an extra delivery charge.
I like when people agree with me, but I think you mis-interpreted. If the MSRP is 20,000 that should include the delivery fee (20k this time for nice easy math). Say the delivery fee is 500. They can’t advertise the MSRP as 19,500. They have to say 20,000 MSRP. Typically there is a footnote/disclaimer that explains…
I disagree with this take a little bit. It wasn’t cool for them to show the number they did, I get that but they were clear about the final number there being “due on delivery” and did not say “Total Price”
In my experience (in automotive advertising for 10 years now) we are legally required to include the destination fee in the advertised MSRP. We don’t get to say MSRP of $19,999! (plus 895 destination fee) that destination fee has to be built in to the $19,999 to be able to say that’s the MSRP.
I liked the truck it was just cheaper for me to sell it and buy a car. I spent less a month on the car payment plus drastically better gas mileage than I was spending on monthly repairs. I miss my 88 2 door blazer though.
