You are not driving a poor excuse for a 5 series, you're driving something that still has the soul of BMW baked into it. You can definitely feel the reduced mass, turn in is very crisp. It has none of the boaty feelings I remember from the base 535's I drove back in 2011.
Amen - I absolutely loved the 528i. About the only thing I hated was the single exhaust at the back. To belittle this due to a 4 cylinder under the hood is not doing this car justice.

Just my thoughts
