I'm torn between 2016 528xi and 2016 535xi, both xdrive.

How much better is 535xi over 528xi?

I've driven my friend's 528xi and it already blew me away ! (coming from a regular 2.2 na gas car)
From what I've read & heard there are advantages to 535xi like:
  1. More power (62hp more)
  2. Inline 6 smoothness & sound
  3. Same MPG as 528xi ?
But also some other opinions about 535:
  1. Weight! 535xi feels like a heavy boat in comparison to 528xi
  2. Power, in specs 0-60 isn't that different, & those additional 62hp don't make much of a difference.
  3. I've also once read that 535 power isn't as responsive as 528 when you accelerate ?

For those who had experience with both 528xi and 535xi, could you confirm/deny what I've mentioned above ?
I need advice!
