I would go with the G50 myself! I have read a well set up 915 works well though but I think there would be less trauma with a G50.

I would say the later car with the G50.

I had an IB with a 915 and couldn't get on with it at all. That said, I have no idea if it was poorly adjusted/needed replacing etc. as I didn't have the car that long.

But the G50 was always spoken of as being superior; could still get a duff one, I suppose...
