Hi all,
I'm new to the forums but I'm very excited and ready to make my first PWC purchase. I rode my buddies Spark, loved it, and decided I'm ready to join the club. ;)

However, I could use some experienced advice while making sure that I make the right purchase. I found what I believe is a solid deal on a brand new never ridden red 2017 2up w/ ibr convenience package. They want 5500 for it. First, is this a good deal??

Second I want to make sure that this year is going to be enough for me as far as technology goes. I believe the extended VTS is supported by 2017 and later, correct? I definitely want the extended specifically and would install it myself so that shouldn't be a significant upgrade in price (200?). Ideally I'd also get the extended handlebars but that's not a deal-breaker if I don't get that immediately.

Down the road soon I'd even like to turn it into a 3up and get the more comfortable seat as well. I've read a couple of threads were people did that for 3-500 ish??

I feel like the 5500 base price would give me some wiggle room to customize it quite nicely and still keep the price reasonable. Course I'd need a trailer as well I have to factor that in.

If anybody would be willing to let me know if this is a solid deal and if the 2017 has any other significant differences from the 18s and/or 19s (aside from color schemes), I would greatly appreciate it!!

TIA!!

buy a spark Trixx- most fun you'll ever have on any ski!
Oh I know I would lol. My only issue is the price of the Trixx.... if I could find an excellent deal on a new or lightly used one I would most likely pull the trigger. But $5500 on a brand new 2017 2up with IBR convenience package is tempting and would give me the budget to add on those Trixx features....

Or can someone point me in the right direction of a 3up Trixx for a killer price?? ;)

Ultimately, I am just looking for info... as I understand it, 2017 and later is what supports extended VTS. I'm wondering what other changes have occurred in 17, 18, 19 models that would gravitate me towards a newer model??

Thanks!

Well, that deal just disappeared from Craigslist... so I'm back to searching.... thinking I'm going to focus more on getting a 3up... will be easier to justify? lol... still looking for any advice anyone is willing to share on this process!

TIA!
