Just saying from an actual 528i owner's perspective...
Sure. People get by every day driving cars like the Peugeot 107 with 70 HP too I think it's silly to suggest that you "need" more than 240 HP in a 5-series. Anyone making that argument is delusional. That won't stop some of us from wanting it though.
