Ours arrived a few weeks ago (forgot to post in this thread)

Some of the stuff we did:

Custom stereo
Wet Sounds
MHD JL Amp power
Three JL 10's
Power Tower
Attitude Adjustment Plate
Surf Tabs
Heater
Underwater LED's
Bow Cushion
All Black Trailer with black 18's, runway lights, etc
A few extra Fat Sacs
Etc etc etc

I did the Teakwood deck for several reasons but mainly I like them better than the glass decks which I've had on my X-Stars. I like this boat a lot more than my last two new X-stars I
2009/10. The wake and surf wave with stock ballast and even with no ballast is better than my last X-Stars too.

Oh man, that looks sweet! Love the color combo.

Thanks Curtish. The stickers came off today and I like it ALOT better. I think I am going to shoot for something similiar to the X2 at the bottom. Thank you to whomever owns that X2 for the graphic idea. Might just keep the simple and small MC sticker in the back....

I went with MC's recommendation and did the 5.7. Here in AZ we aren't at any high altitude. We had 7 people and over 1200lbs ballast last week and it did great. I might try the 5 blade OJ and see how much of a different that makes too.

I wasn't too impressed with the finish of the Gel coat brand new from MC so I had my detailers spend 18 hours doing the entire boat inside and out. The pics indoors you can see swirls on the back, the black was worse. The first pic I added out in the sun you can see there's not a swirl anywhere and the finish now looks like a show boat. Multi-stage process of sanding, polishing and waxing. I'm anal about my stuff Here's a before and after pic of the black portions of the gel coat. Keep in mind the first pic is how it was delivered from MC and the boat is brand new. The second and third pics are after my guys were done with it. Most people don't look at their cars and boats under harsh light for flaws but I do and make them all go away. I have full time detailers at my place so it's nice having them there. And Robbie from AWS was so impressed he might use my detailers for all their boats now as well. If anyone in AZ needs boat detailing shoot me a PM.

I agree I might order a new X-Star later in the year. If I do I'll let you know when my X25 is for sale. My last X-Star went up to Canada too!

New (to me...) 2011 X25. Have only had it out a few times so far but I am very pleased with the wake and surf wake.
