Buy the nicest example of whatever year you can afford. A well sorted 915 is a joy to use, mine is the nicest car transmission I have ever shifted. It only has 105,000 miles though and has never been opened, running Swepco, short shift, extended shift lever, Stomski coupler, with a Seine Shift gate as icing. This trans is as teutonic as sauerkraut, precise and rock solid in every aspect, a pure joy to operate. A buddy who is looking at 911s came out to SFO and we had a lunch and I let him drive my car in the mountains, he had "heard" about the troublesome 915, and was blown away by the shift action in my car, he said it reminded him of a machine tool. 915 cars are now on his list. It is important to remember that over time all cars, Porsche included need periodic maintenance, unfortunately Porsche MX costs alot so they tend to try to stretch the nickle and dime things out.
