New screens (look like the Supra screens), new software, $12k power tower, %6 price increases, loss of DD models ....... all sound like HUGE steps forward to me.

Was looking at a new X30, but we may just need to hunker down and keep the X2 forever.

This is getting ridiculous.

Loving the price forecast...means my 95 will be worth more... eash is right...was considering a new 197 in a couple years but at that rate I will need a 30 year note...

Is that a Murphy display as in Murphy's Law? Anything that can go wrong will go wrong? I thought the BIG already had a corner on that market?

I absolutely agree that the pricing is getting out of hand. However the new X-30 starts at $80,000 which seems much cheaper than the X-25.

Wow, that would seriously hurt my feelings. I have a hankering for the X-14. I'm a diehard DD enthusiast. Without the X-14 option, I think I will wander aimlessly...

Each year, people ***** about the prices (and I understand the complaint) but they keep selling boats and adding more expensive options.

So in summary....if you buy it, they will build it.
