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.
I agree with you on the 535i power. I really wanted the 550i or M5, but driving 30k miles a year required me to do a cost/benefit analysis. The 535i gave me the balance of "just enough power" and somewhat decent fuel economy. This car really needs the N63 or S63 to be called fast.
