Frankly, at the moment we don't know whether the K3 visa even remains viable. It seems the USCIS policy has changed from holding the I-130 petition for AOS to cancelling the I-129F petition and forwarding the I-130. If it were me today, I wouldn't file the I-129F at all.

It doesn't change anything. Refraining from filing the I-129F keeps you on the CR1 path you started by filing the I-130. With no I-129F the CR1 process will proceed.

the CR1 might be slightly longer but in the end you will get a green card.. ...

whereas with the K3 once you get to the US you need to apply for Adjustment Of Status before you get the green card and that costs over 1000 dollars....
