Planning to buy a 530D GT- need advice

I am considering replacing my 7 year old Merc E270 CDI, a car I have enjoyed driving and have no complaints. This time want to try out a BMW. I shortlisted the 530D GT specially for its practicality and legroom at the rear. However, from the various reviews, the thing that has concerned me most is some reports of rough drive unlike a BMW luxury sedan. While most of my drives will be on reasonably good roads, would not want to suffer on the occaisional driving on rural roads or on crossing speed bumps which my Merc does smoothly.
Hope to hear from real owners and daily users of the GT in this forum.
Any other advice on must have and never-have options while ordering the car will also be useful. I would like to keep the cost low by only ordering really practical and safety features.
