fix m9 or upgrade?

My beloved Leica M9 finally was bitten by the sensor corrosion issue. The shutter wouldnt fire and when i shipped it back to Leica they confirmed the issue. They have no more m9 sensors and so are offering to upgrade me to a M10P for 5800 or M10R for 7300. Looking at ebay it looks like used m9s are worth about 2000 and their is Kolari Vision that will fix the sensor for 1000. Now I will admit I've always liked the m9s unique CCD sensor, but 1000 to fix a 10 year old camera is a lot. OTOH I dont currently have either 1000 or 5700 but obviously 1000 i easier to get, and I do have a birthday ending in 0 coming up. Id the M10 that big a improvement? what about the P versus R?

Thanks for any input.
