Earlier BOA systems sucked ass. Their quality has since improved by leaps and bounds. I'd say stick with 2008 and above.
As for quick laces... HELL NO. I hate quick laces with a passion. Had a pair of Salomon, Ride, and Burton quick laces. They all sucked major ass. Always loosening up.
Traditional laces or new BOA is the only way to go. Even with BOA, I think I would only do the Focus ones.
