Just saying from an actual 528i owner's perspective...
I certainly did not mean to offend any 528i owners here, I am just trying to share my experience with 528i. Everybody sets different priorities for their car. Personally, I think even the 535i can use another 20-30 HP, but that is just me. When I buy a sport luxury sedan, I want quick acceleration. I may not use it all the time, but itís nice to know itís on tap when I need it.
