Mein Auto: BMW 528xi
It's my wife's primary vehicle and I primarily drive an Acura RL. I think the 28i has plenty of power and if it had more I'd get speeding tickets. I like the fact it gets better gas mileage and costs at least $3K less up front. If you're an enthusiast go for the bigger engine, you're wife will doubtfully see a difference. Just got back from a long drive over the weekend and we were getting 25+ mpg. At times the on board computer was registering 30+ mpg. Bottom line is we're filling up the tank about half the time over our old Acura MDX. Insurance rates are less with smaller engine.

I think it's always a good idea to do a back to back comparison test drive of new model vehicles.
