Upgrade KEF Reference 201 to KEF R3 for Side Surrounds

Hi all, long time KEF owner here. Originally from Europe but am living in the US.

My original (snapshot 1 year ago) setup is a 11.2 all-KEF setup [ ignoring the 6 heights ], I had the 1990s Reference Four Mains, 204/2c Center, 1990s Reference Two Sides. Dual PSW4000 subs with a custom amp. After replacing the ferrofluids in the 1990s speakers, I decided to 'modernize'. I sold my Ref Fours (too big for my room anyway) and got the R11. I got a good deal on a pair of used Reference 201s so I replaced my side Ref Twos with those.

However, I can most likely get a pair of R3s (to match my R11s), and after selling my R 201s I can probably break-even. I'm concerned with the NT19 tweeters in the R 201s (ferrofluid) to be honest.

Would you keep the Ref 201s or get the R3s?
