Those are not bad years. You want to look for maintenance history and have a PPI done. The 3.0 would have pretty much the same engine as your E39 with larger displacement. I would rather have more power than less, so I'd get the 4.4.

2000 Dinan S1 //M5 (my DD), 06 DINAN E53 4.8iS (wife's DD), 90 Straman Z32TT (my pride & joy ride)
Gone, but not forgotten: 01 E53 3.0i, 01 525i Sport, 03 DINAN 540i MSport and 91 Z32TwinTurbo
