    EDIT: The listing for the g27 is no longer avaliable and i couldn't find another g27 is good condition that was cheap. At this point im most likely to get a g29 as i cant find any other wheel with clutch and shifter that meets my max budget.

    Neither, because the days of gear internals are over. Belt drive has proven itself, so get a Thrustmaster.

    Used G27 is likely going to need a new pot on the brake and/or throttle and the shifter can probably use tightening (shim under the spring detent). It is, after all, a decade old.

    I say this while still using a G25 pedal & shifter set with my Fanatec CSWv2. Yes, I'll be upgrading them very soon.

    I have heard of how good the thrustmaster wheels are but sadly in order to get one with clutch pedal and shifter its simply too far out of my current budget which was the reason i narrowed it down to the g29 in the first place. Thanks for the tip however.
