I'm currently in the market for an x14 or an x9. I've been looking at a lot of '08s, and have spent plenty of time on one, but a dealer near by has an '07 without many hours that looks pretty tempting. Are there any real differences in the x14 as you go from 07 to 08 and 09 other than the graphics?

Not really. Carpet went from 2 piece (07-08) to 3 piece in '09. There was a tower brace add on in late '07 or '08. '08 was an aberration with electronics where neither PP Stargazer nor Zero Off could be installed. (Or something similar - whatever it was I could not get tournament style speed control for my '08) '07 ad '09 could have been fitted with what I was looking for. (2 different choices PP in '07 and ZO in 09) That wasn't an issue for me really, I just wanted it. Factory props varied through the years until OJ developed one specifically for the 214 DD in '09. (I liked the 3 blade on my '08 better - still an OJ). VDig appeared in '08 iirc. Ipod connection changed in '09.

If I were in the market I'd look for the one in the best condition/ most options/ best colors. I'd replace the graphics from all 3 years. (Which I did on my '09)

Good luck with the search and welcome to the forum.

They all are great boats ... as JohnE stated those are the major differences ... friend has an '07 and literally the only difference is lack of Vdig (and while its a neat feature i'm on #3)

good luck and welcome to the super cool X14 club!

What props in 08 and 09. I have a 13 x 11 VC on my 08.
