The 400 is cheaper, from HobbyKing, but from what I've read, it sounds like quite a bit needs replacing, like the pushrods, and a nose leg that doesn't keep breaking would be better than trying to improve on one that does, I suppose.

I have plenty of motors, and probably have a spare ESC, so upgrading the 350 should be easier.
Yes you have a good understanding of the 400. My 350 has 15 grams of lead on the tail. I fly it with 1800 mAh and with my tearing up the sky I get eight minutes with 3.7 volts left in the pack on landing. I like a good buffer on the electrons just in case I have a couple of shocking approaches on final.
