It was me. I was using the same calculator you used when you said 530 is less than 50HP less than a 540.

2003 540 = 290HP 324ftlb Torque
530 = 225HP 214ftlb
diff = 65HP 110ftlb Torque

2003 540i6 = 5.6s 0-60mph
530ia = 7.5s 0-60mph
diff = 1.9s

I'm not trying to diss the 530, I owned a 528iA for four years. Going to 530 only upped the torque by 10 ftlbs. Enjoy your ride, nobody criticized it (except for adding a fake loud pedal!)
