2010-12 X25 help, advice and info needed

Hi all
New to this site but been busily using the search function and lots of great info gathered. I'm in the land down under (Aust) and in the market for nice pre loved boat. After doing some research and inspections I've settled on the X25 and my budget means it will likely be around the 2010, 11, 12 model. As it'll be mostly used in coastal salt water I want the salt water series and prefer the 6.0L.

I see that 2011 is a bit of a transitional year with some boats having the Imdmar engine and 4point tower and others the Ilmore engine and new tower.

So a few questions

- I'm interested in thoughts on the advantages (or not) of the newer setup. There's definately a jump in price for this here but not sure if it's worth it.
- what other changes are in models of these years?
-Anything to specifically look for in second hand boats ? Problems etc

There's a low hrs 2011 model I'm interested in with the older tower and Indmar but it seems the cover has stained the seats. Seems strange but I guess can be cleaned. It has the buttons at the rear for shower/slick boot. Does this mean the boat has this feature or is the switch on all?
Any info, suggestions, advice is greatly appreciated

Maybe it is this one

Do you have to raise and lower the tower often? The two point tower will be much easier to do this. The 2012' s have known issues with the Medallion system so if you look at these make sure that everything is working ok. I would test drive any boat you are serious about and make sure everything is working the way it should.

Nice work! That's the one I've looked at. I probably wouldn't be doing much tower lowering but may in the future if I decide to store it at the holiday house in a garage. Likely would live in my side driveway passage at home. I thought that a closed cooling system meant the shower wouldn't work but it has a switch for this? There's also a fresh water flush attachment and there's a reservoir next to the engine. How does this work? Current owner didn't seem to know.

So in salt water, the 'shower' would be warm/hot salt water?
