I've run an E60 535d for four years, now on an F10 535d.

If you've only driven a 530d, then you would wonder why bother with a 535d; but once you've tried a 535d, you wouldn't want to go back.

The two things that really set the 535d are instantaneous throttle response - there is no lag whatsoever, it is sharper than even a 550i - and the ingear acceleration between 30 through to 70 - passing slow moving traffic becomes so easy.

The price difference isn't quite as large as it seems, as the 535d has the auto as standard.
