I test drove both, at the dealership and at the Lane Changing Event.
The power between the two were definitely noticeable.
Had it all on Sport Mode for the 250F and 350 Non F.
Having driven each of the 2 at least 5 times, it helped me make my decision.
I considered the CT too, but it didn't have the power I was looking for.
Regardless, it had the best mileage, can't have the best of both worlds.
At this point, I've been pumping on a weekly basis, instead of a biweekly basis with my older vehicle.
Passing while car is in motion is no problem, but from 0 you'll find yourself wanting more power.
Just as Kelvin105 says, wish he had more power and went with the 350, but to each their own.
Mileage isn't that much of a difference, probably 1-5mph which shouldn't detain you.
