Mein Auto: 2008 535i
I did the Ultimate driving thing today. IMO, the *50 is a tad, just a tad, better than the *35. At least once you up the *35 to the full *50 complement.

No mistake, I loved the 35, and do love my own 35, but there was juuuuust a little bit extra. Personally, I would go with the *35. It does it all. And, when setting up the *50 to drive, I did notice the 12.5 MPG on the dash. Yeah, I know, the Ultimate people mash the heck outta them things.

But, personally, as a frugal sort of fellow, I am looking at my next 5 being a 535, with the HUD, the active suspension, and a few other bits.

(BTW, I was extreeeeeemly disappointed in the MB. Not only did it have no torque, it had a freakin' windowshade over the sunroof!)
