Good looking Slingshot. Where are you located? The 'sad' thing with the mods is that as you go to sale the machine the 'mods' are worth about 10 cents on the dollar. Most of the 2015 are going for about $15,000.00. I do have a friend who might be interested in this burnt orange unit.

The 'burnt orange' Slingshot was a special addition in 2015 --- so it's a 2015 not 2016.

Thank you for your feedback this is exactly the type of information I am looking for. When I was on this forum a year and a half ago I saw mention of mods getting 50%. I am curious to get some additional opinions. at or near 15k I would hang onto my toy I hope that is a low figure I'm ready to buy another Model S

Sad to say, but while mods were going for $0.50 on the $1.00, this year is a bit different, and Polaris stock standing, lack of commitment to warranty coverage and non-off-road vehicles, and other factors kind of sucked the wind out of Slingshot sales. I wish it were different, but unfortunately things change with time. Your ride is awesome, and I don't blame you for hanging on to it.

I'm getting ready to sell mine...expanding family and all that means I am not getting out as much as I like. I am going to essentially take a fair/low ball offer to offload it. I have over $25K in mods in to mine...I am probably going to list for under $30K...we'll see how far below that number I settle on.

This is exactly why I bought an SLR and not a base unit. Banks don’t consider user add ones when they calculate the loan value of a vehicle. Buying a basic SS and putting on $20,000 of accessories is just plain stupid unless you plan to drive it until the wheels fall off. But if you can afford it and want a totally custom SS go for it. Just don’t plan to gte your money back when you sell it.
