I currently have a 2016 Base GT 350 and purchased a 2018 GT 350R today. Can others who have went from 350 to 350R chime in and let me know if making the jump was good decision? Are the handling characteristics much improved? Do you really like your R? I plan on tracking it about 3 days a summer. I can’t settle for an automatic GT500 so I decided on the 350R.
