Thinking of getting a Nikon 16-85 for my D90

I currently have a nice setup with Nikon gear. My current gear consists of

Nikon D90
Nikon F100
Nikon F90

Sigma 10-20mm
Tokina 20-35mm
Nikon 18-55mm VR
Nikon 50mm 1.8
Nikon 85mm 1.8
Tamron 70-300mm DI Macro

I have the Tokina 20-35mm purely for my film camera it's not something I would use on my D90. I'm considering selling my 18-55VR to get a 16-85VR. I'm really wondering is the 16-85VR significantly better than the 18-55VR to warrant me investing around £360. I'm probably looking for people who used both lenses in the past to really help out with the answer.

I like the idea of the 16-85VR as it probably covers around 90% of my style in photography. I've been pretty happy with the results when I've used the 18-55VR and for a kit lens it does remarkably well.

Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.
