I’m looking to buy a F-type Convertible in either Black or Red with Red interior. Would prefer an R because of the thug ass growl that comes with the V8.

However there is also the cost factor between the S (35-45k) and the R (45-60k) so I’m wondering if I would be content with a V6S with an ECM upgrade and upgraded pipes. Would love to get some perspective from current owners.

Yeah...I think you are right. The V6 is peppy so if get behind the V8 I will probably be hooked.

I have an 2017 S and I love it, but I wish I purchased the R. The 2020’s and 21,s I believe are AWD drive like the S. I’m definitely looking to upgrade. Don’t get me wrong the S model will move I guess it’s your preference.

Thanks for sharing. I test drove a 14 V8 S and it was bananas with the power and sound. To think that the R is even more powerful with an exhaust note to match...my mind is made up. Gotta go with a V8
