It depends on your taste. Night 3 of BOLA 2007 is arguably the best show PWG has ever produced, and for that matter one of the best indy shows ever. It has Pac/Claudio, CIMA/Shingo, Pac/CIMA, Shelley/Sydal, Shelley/Strong, Generico/Dragon Kid, Generico/Strong/CIMA... all of which were amazing. Night 1 had a good tag opener, Pac & Jack which was really fun, Strong & Aries which was probably the tourny match of the night, and a great tag team main event in Generico & Steen vs. Dragon Kid & Susumu Yokosuka. Night 2 had Shingo vs. Scott Lost which I think is one of the most underrated matches of that tournament, and Dragon Kid vs. Susumu.
The 2006 BOLA has a different vibe on DVD. Night one had some okay matches, Strong vs. Romero (the first of their series in PWG). Night two caters more to the fans of hardcore. A brutal tag title match with The Briscoes vs. Lost/Bosh vs. B-Boy/Homicide. This match can be summed up in two words, "fork stabbing." Plus it has the Super Dragon vs. Necro Butcher match which was simply incredible. Night 3 of '06 was very much like night 3 of '07 in that everyone steps up their game for their final matches and delivers some incredible performence. Generico/Sabin was great. Generico vs. CIMA is considered the '06 match of the year for PWG by many. The loser-tag was hilarious.
You really should own both, but if you have to choose I'd say go with '07 as it will keep you a little more up to date with PWG, it has much better production values (although both years are leaps ahead of other companies including ROH), and it has (at least I think) a couple more matches than '06 which will make your jaw drop. Get '07 now, and later go back and get '06.
