      Now your talking. This gives you time and options. Right now you may not think you need time, you know what you want, all you need is a good price and color options and you'd be right to an extent. Please allow me to elaborate. Getting you first SS can be a lot like when you learned your wife was pregnant with your first child. You know there is a new baby coming and now you have time to prepare for it. Will it be parked inside or outside? If it's outside you'll want a good cover for it. If it's inside you may still want a dust cover for it. There will be times that you'll need to get underneath it to change oil among other things so how are you going to lift it? I read of one owner that doesn't do his own oil changes. He takes it to the local quick change and pulls just the front end over their pit and they do it for him. Oh and lets not forget all the mods your going to want to do. If you know ABSOLUTELY for sure any mods that you are going to do then you can go ahead and start ordering those. Most but not all parts will swap between the model years without a problem but do your research to be sure. It'll be a lot like when you knew that child was coming and didn't know if it was to be a boy or girl so you went ahead and purchased the things that you knew you were going to need that could be used for either. Some folks are going to tell you to wait until you get your SS and put some miles on it before deciding on any mods and that is good advice unless you are for sure about some things you want. Myself, I knew for sure there were lots of things that I wanted to change and set about ordering thousands of dollars of mods while awaiting delivery of the SS. Up until yesterday I hadn't taken off or changed a single mod/addition that I originally ordered. Yesterday I decided I wanted to try something different with my exhaust. Moral to this story is, you know it's coming so if there is anything you are positive that you want to put on it as soon as you take possession of it you now have the time to shop the best prices and options and have it in hand when the time comes! Enjoy!
      Thank you for taking the time to talk me off the ledge, I'm really not into mods just like the stock S model, I'm sure that will change :D. I don't have a garage to store it so that is an issue come winter. I was very surprised to see online that all of the used 2015-17 models are still so expensive. Also surprised there were virtually no used SS anywhere in my vicinity, everything was out of state.

      Find another dealer. The one you are working with smells blood in the water!
      The dealer I've been working with since I test drove the base 2018 S MODEL has given me the best price in the 3 different locations I've checked... $19,800 with windshield, colored grill and belt cover. But the longer I mull over this the more I'm beginning to come to my senses. Don't get me wrong I'd love to have it. Also, the base 2019 S MODEL is white and I want the 2018 black, so waiting for the 2019 is something I don't want to do.
      I would definitely wait until Polaris reveals the new models. You will save money and there will be dealers who are still sitting on their 2018 inventory because it will take a month or two before they get the 2019 models in their showrooms. Also, I don’t believe any dealers know the new colors until The official reveal. They are likely trying to scare you into buying NOW. Like I said, my wife owns a rather large dealership and they don’t know the new colors of the 2019 models yet.

      “Local” used Slings are a rare breed. We went over 2,000 miles away to take delivery on an exceptional, highly loved ‘15 Sling. It was one of the best moves I’ve made.

      Copy and paste that into the address bar and spend a while looking to see what is out there and at what price. That will give you a good idea of what you should expect to pay. If you see something you like then figure in what it would cost you to travel to pick it up. Often times there may be someone from this forum that is close enough to go by and take a look at it for you and take any specific pictures that you would want taken. I feel like we were fortunate to be able to buy new and at a reasonable price close to home(1hr). Looking back I'm not sure I wouldn't have been better off to buy used and use the money saved to buy the mods that I wanted but then again I actually wanted the upgrades that came with the one that I bought and those upgrades were not available on an older model. It sounds to me like you may not be into doing much modding in the beginning and that's a good thing and will likely save you some money. Once you get your SS and spend some time with it you may then decide there are some things you want. Good luck in your search and if you happen to find one within a couple hundred miles of me that you are interested in and would like for me to give it a look then give me a shout. We are always looking for an excuse to ride somewhere. There is always a great place to eat somewhere close by, everywhere in the South.

      I flew to West Palm Beach FL for a great deal on a 15 for @HeRSling last summer. 2800 miles and most of the mods one would want. Didn’t stop Patti though. She had it painted by St. Painter and then started adding more stuff. New seats, DDM sway bar and coolant tank, wheels, and she’s thinking about a supercharger like mine.

      They all make you want to spend money on mods.

      cool..3 hours drive and you save 3000 and a dealer who really does not know how to sell loses a deal...I like it.

      Welcome to the SS family. If you never drove an SS before or not many miles I would say first make sure those mirrors are setup right. You do NOT turn the black part but you press on the mirror.

      let us know about the pickup and the ride back.

      I'm actually going back to the dealer tonight so my wife can actually see how the 2018 rides. I'm asking one more time for OTD price of $18,000 then walking.

      @highiso, I have a 17 and the only thing about it is some minor changes in the frame and the headlight assembly. To put the extra headlights in you have to buy a complete assembly and the strut for the DDM extended hood hinges will not attach yet. They are working on an adapter. Everything else is basically the same.

      Question on the painting. Did they have to disassemble all of the body panels or did they paint it as is? I am looking at doing a full paint job and was wondering what was entailed so I could get some quotes.

      @brireeves629, body panels need to come off to do it right. Not a hard job. Two people could take off all the panels you need to paint in about an hour.
      Jim Hutchinson has a bunch of videos on YouTube that show how to remove the panels. Here is a link to #1: youtu.be/CkGAyurXiRc
      He has videos for every section. Pulling panels is pretty easy but you need to be careful with some of the parts (hood panels in particular) since they are plastic and replacements aren’t cheap.

      Glad to see others have chimed in to help you with any issues concerning the 17' SS's. I own an 18' and don't have any particular knowledge of the 17's worthy of mentioning. The only thing I can suggest is to make sure if there are any recalls that affect that particular SS make sure they have been addressed. Make sure it has a clear title, not rebuilt or salvage. Good luck with your purchase regardless of which one you end up with.

      Hopefully you have a strong marriage because having an SS is like having a mistress on the side only it lives with you. Don't let your wife catch you out sitting in it late and nite caressing it's curves! LOL
