It's not that hard. The 535 is a very adequate engine. With a slight modification like a Burger Motorsport Tune, it is a good improvement. You will not notice the difference in every day...

A self-indulgent "payment" could mean you can't afford it. I think it is hard to justify the price difference. I have driven one for a day, and although it feels sleeker, it just isn't worth it. ...

Out of interest, did you ever try to push the pedal aggressively with the brake on, (in a safe place of course) and determine if the car throttles back the fuel delivery?

This is the kind of thing that is plainly a problem. If my car did that, I would have the same reaction you did. BMW has to know that these problems are manufacturing related.
