pricing E350 vs 535i

Having a dilema. We are loooong time BMW drivers, first one was a 1978 530i, and have owned a couple MB's along the way. Currently have '08 Carrera S, 08 Tacoma and '10 528i.

The 528 is coming off lease in a couple weeks and really want to replace it with a 535. However, the BMW dealers just aren't dealing. After grinding away I can only seem to get about 5% off msrp. So I went to look at a E350 Sport sedan just for comparison. MB dealer gave me $5000 off within 5 minutes and another $2000 before I left the dealership. And I really hadn't started to grind.

So we are at about $59K for the 535 and $51K for a similarly equiped E350 (probably still more room on the Benz). I really want the Bimmer but $8 to $10 grand is a big spread. MB financing was 2.9% vs 3.9 at BMW.
