Also consider:
- 550i will likely be eventually tuneable
- 550i has nicer exhaust tips (you may or may not care)
- The DINAN mods will likely not add to your residual, while the 550i's residual will be higher than the 535i (not as a percentage, just $ figure)
- DINAN may be different with BMW Canada in terms of warranty than the US
