WTB Used X45, looking for advice

Hey y'all I'm looking at getting an x45 within the year possibly. I've really been looking since last winter. Definitely need an 05 to 08 to fit what I'm willing to pay. Based on everything I've looked at including a lot of threads on here, I've decided to not consider the 5.7 MCX. Now, that brings me to my questions:

1. I'm focusing on 07 and up due to "tower shake" problems of the 2005 and 2006s. Is this a concern I should really have?
2. There are a few salt series / closed cooling boats out there. I will not go for a salt boat , but many of these say they've been used in fresh water only. Would this be a concern and do these have a lower resale? What about the crusader engine?
3. Some have maristars listed as x45's. I realize if there is a tower this is the same boat other than some trims. Is this totally correct and is this a resale concern?

Last is there any other things I should really be on the lookout for?

Thanks all!
