    Hi new to the forum but have been here reading everyday. I went to the Chicago Autoshow last month and fell in love with the Slingshot. Weather and work have me tied up but I will be picking it up first of April. I'm wondering if $21,000 otd is a decent price for a 2016 Red Pearl

    Details, details!!!...Extra mods? Mileage? Windshield wipers? Air in the tires? Gas in the tank? Extra key? Gloves in the box? Lug nut wrench? Spare tire? Lightening rod? Polar bear decals? Hawaiian flowered seat covers?

    Welcome to the World of Slingshot Insanity....Sounds like a good
    price to me....I was in the Polaris/Nielsen both for most of the time for all 3 days of the show. Talked to a lot of people ... I was the guy flirting with the girls and picking on the guys...don't work for Polaris
    or Nielsen so I didn't have to follow all the rules....I don't do the 'Facebook' thing but I'm part of the Bad *SS group on Facebook in the Greater Chicagoland area. look for our activities. PM me with your info and I will add you to the e-mail list.....

    Welcome to the madness. How many mods have you already planned in your head? :D

    Lots to learn here and the company is worth it. Always happy to help. Happy driving.

    One other thing I was so scared about the insurance after reading things here. I gave them the vin number and nervously awaited the results. It came to a whooping $336 a year I told my wife now I can't afford not to buy it. I was preparing her for a real high price.

    Preparing your wife for the big thing isnt always the best strategy but in your case it sounds like you came out on top.
    Seriously, you got a good deal on the Sling and the insurance!
    Congrats and safe riding.

    That's a great OTD price. It's tough to get a new base model for that price.

    I drove my first Slingshot today. I loved it just as I thought I would. People did give me looks in 35 degree weather and shorts and a sweatshirt on. It was a demo I will pick mine up next week.
