My previous car was a 89' 535i 5-speed with limited slip, Dinan suspension, chip, exhaust, and ported intake manifold. I have a 99'540i 6-speed and I miss limited slip. You have huge amounts of power going through one wheel. I have driven an M3 and it is still my favorite it terms of feel-Love the sound the way the power builds with the six-cylinder. The 540 performs excellent but you feel more disconnected with the car and the controls. The 540 has excellent potential with some aftermarket parts. If you can I would wait to at least drive the new M3 before making your decission.
