It looks like the MTA has given up on 75 ft cars hopefully for good.

I sure hope not! As pointed out by Henry R32, 75' cars are substantially better than 60' cars in many ways! Both procurement and operating costs are significantly lower. And with the MTA's move to unitized trains, mixing car fleets between the BMT east and the rest of the B division seems to be a thing of the past.

Name one advantage that a 5 car set of R160's has over a 4 car set of future 75' cars with 5 doors per car.
