I completely understand it is not a big deal but it would still chap my ass.

I try to keep my stuff looking like new as long as possible.

The simplicity and durability of the 300hp is superior to the 350hp.

If you plan on running to the grave, I would want the 300hp. To keep and sell before warranty is over then take the 350hp.
