Seeking Gas Boiler Advice

Hi Folks! I have a 15 year old Buderus GB142-45 (129K BTU) that has performed well. Recently the unit has been throwing intermittent 3L errors indicating it needs a new blower fan ($). Given we are at the end of the boiler's life, I am thinking it is time to cut my losses and look into a replacement. I've gotten two quotes so far one for a Bradford-White Brute FT ($) and one for Weil Mclain EVG-110 ($). The price difference is way out of whack and I am getting other estimates. One of the things I have liked about the Buderus is the wired remote controller (pic attached). As the boiler is in crawl space being able to see the display (error codes) has come in handy.

Are there boilers I should be looking into. Will install a direct vent at 95% efficiency to take advantage of NJ rebate.

Not that it matters but about 18 months ago the coils on my Buderus indirect water tank perforated and in swapping it out the Buderus boiler low-loss header manifold cracked and was replaced with an updated one -- excluding the water tank, the manifold repair was about $. (pics of old and new attached)

Thanks!
