Also, one of the 528xi I drove had a lot of lag, much more than my 535xi. I guess the lag problem is pretty much random across F10 models.
I find the 535 to be rather lackluster in terms of power. Most would say; “sufficient power” can be found in the 550.
So this line of thinking starts another chapter in the “If I’m going to spend this much for this car, then I…..” book of reasoning.

The bottom line is; we chose what we chose and shouldnt have to, or feel the need to justify it.

Any choice is a good choice as long as the chooser enjoys it.
