Soon to be part of the family 528 or 535

Getting ready to pull the trigger on a 5XX. I'm getting prices from 3 dealers on 2014s. The first dealer is leasing at below invoice. Right now it's a 69 dollar difference between the 2 with dealer #1. Will check with my insurance company tomorrow to see what the operating costs differential will be. Haven't driven the 535 yet it was near closing time. The other dealer has a 535 demo with 6k miles which I can probably get for the same lease as the 528. Although I'm concerned about how those 6k miles were driven.

Was considering 528 but wanted to see if the 335 drove like my old E36 328is. Loved the power. When I returned they asked 335 or 528 my response was 535!

When I test drove the 335 I drove it like it was meant to be driven. Hard with bonsai runs up the freeway ramps. But I wont be driving like that normally. I'm a finance guy so the angel on the shoulder kicks in and says get the more practical 528. The other guy wants the 535. NOTE: I do have a Boxster to address the car nut side of me. But I'm sure the 535 is faster. BTW I drove an; A6, A5, A3, CLA 250, 228, 328, 528.

After a loooooong E36 absence i'm looking forward to coming back home. This is one of the best car groups. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Get the 535. And don't worry how the 6k was driven. You're leasing, the car will be fully covered under warranty the entire time.
