For those outside Australasia the car he is referring to is the same as a Chevy Cruze, I think.

The 530i should be more responsive, mine probably has a half second delay for kickdown. The thing you also have to consider is the extra torque in the I6 means that the car moves faster, unlike a smaller engine in an only slightly smaller sedan which has to work harder.
