My dealer said he had 2 prices, for a clean deal and trade in. I traded a 2000 Millennium Edition MXZ700 in for $4269 and he sold me the std team F7 for $7729. I paid a difference of ~3600 and freight $140. I thought it was a good deal initially since my doo dealer was going to give me $4100 for the trade. I see what others are paying and I am getting pissed. I would appreciate any constructive input.:angry:

I think you kinda got bent a little bit on the retail price of the F7, but it's a retail to retail, wholesale to wholesale deal, pretty much like buying a new vehicle. Be glad you were able to get an F7!

Sounds about average. I would not worry about it. I paid $8250 OTD for my Team SP. One thing you did screw up on is that you didin't get a free F7 hat like I did. :D

Its the same old numbers game. He showed you more on your trade, so it looked good compared to the fair price from your doo dealer, and then bumped up the price on the new sled.

This happens all the time in the automotive industry. Best thing to do is first, get the best deal you can on a new sled. And then when you have a price, ask what you can get for the old one.

Works the same way with cars and trucks.

$ 7100 OTD (Black F7 sabrecat snopro) I was the first to order from my dealer so I think I got a good price. No extras but he did give me 20% off all of my accessories.

I traded in a 2001 zrt 600 and had to pay 3,800.00 to boot. I got the standard F7. That price did include 156 gold diggers installed, cover, belt, gallon of oil, 2 plugs, 8" woody's carbides installed, title, tax and license. I think I did pretty good! B)

Just depends what #s you want to see. Wholesale for wholesale or retail for retail. The dealer is in business to make money... right. There isn't any law that says he can only make a certain amount when selling a sled. Dealers have cost that they have to pay for too. As long as the paper work is legit don't worry.

I had a 98 ZRT and the trade in price for an F7 was 7,799. Clean sale for the F7 was 6,800, so guess what I did? I sold the ZRT for a few hundred dollars less than market value and sold it in two days and saved myself 1,000 in the end. It worked out great for the guy that bought mine because he got a deal and it worked great for me and I was able to buy my fircat the second week in Oct.

knock knock...

Too many variables to compare for out the door prices. What is everyone's state sales tax. I have worked @ dealers in other states that charge 13.5% state/town tax. In MN it's 6.5%. Most dealers here in the midwest make about 5-8% on the sale of a sled or atv. Then they don't charge set up...take that in the mix and they aren't making a lot. Now trade a sled in and keep in mind how flooded the market is. Hope they can get rid of it the same year or they have to store it too. Be glad you can find a dealer who will trade to begin with. lol
