Looking at your past rides, make sure you take an extended test drive in the RWD 535 to be sure you can live with the steering feel. Even though you may never see snow, you may want to consider an xDrive for the better steering feel (though even that will feel awfully light compared to your Z4 and M3).

BTW I agree with others that you should have Tech/Nav, PDC and rear view camera (we never use the side view or birds eye view) and BMW Apps. Our 535 has soft-close doors, lane departure warning, blind spot detection and auto high beams, and I find them all to be a waste of money.

Current BMW's:
2017 540i MSport
2016 428 GC MSport
2015 X1 28i xDrive
2015 X1 35i xDrive
