Upgrading MK2/S to MK3S+ - Feasibility, Advantages, and Disadvantages

Hello Prusa community! I currently own an MK2/S and I'm considering upgrading to an MK3S+. Can I directly upgrade my MK2/S or should I opt for a new printer? What are the advantages of the MK3S+ and any potential drawbacks I should be aware of? Additionally, what factors should I consider in terms of cost-effectiveness? If I decide to upgrade, what are the recommended steps and precautions? Your insights and guidance on this upgrade decision would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

mk2, to mk3, is not a cost effective upgrade. 
If you can obtain a Mk52 12 volt heatbed and removable PEI/Textured/satin build plate, then Mk2.5S is probably the best you can do.
