2009 535i Sedan $47010- $51100 , 3.0L I6 300 HP

2009 650i Coupe $78,200 - $85,300 V8 360 HP (Convertibles more expensive)

Get a 6!

I don't know much about the 5 series platform but the 6 is more the 2 door version of the 7 series than the 5 series. The quality of the interior and options are comperable.

Also when comparing the engine options you can't say the 6 is more powerfull than the 5 when the 550i has the same engine as the 650i. Also at the same time since the 535i is twin turbo you can get an aftermarket ECU tune or piggyback and bring the HP to around 400hp with little $. You can't do that on the naturally aspirated v8
