Mein Auto: 535i
I just got my 535i from recall fix. I got the 328 loaner and do concur that there is enough power for a non turbo 6 cyl, however if all u want is that then why buy a BMW? I tried 335i, 335d and was very impressed with it's performance. 335i pins ur head into the head rest while the 335d sounds good at 3k to 4k rpm but runs out of ponies compared to the 335i. From that perspective I love to drive the 335i. However if u have long commute and mileage is an issue the 335d is plentiful. After all this analysis I still bought 535i! Simply because I figured the car was very well insulated, behaves much better with power and with sports package is real fun and sturdy car. I'f I did not have long work commute I would pick the 550xi with sports package. This car gives u the 'Gs' I'n ur tummy like the 335i and the stable handling of the 5 series. But that's the limit, if u get to 7s that's an old mans perf limo. U loose the sporty feeling altogether. Thats like going from a Ducati 1100cc race bike to a Harley!
