Have there been any common problems with that year. Any questions that I should be asking.

I can tell you that in 05 with the MCX only, they went DBW. That's about it though.

I bought a used '05 197 in February '07. I had no problems. As was just mentioned it was the first year for dbw with the mcx. A lot of '05 owners went with the '06 rudder upgrade. You might want to look for one with that feature or plan on doing it yourself.

Might be a really dumb question but what is DBW
