I say go for the E39. The "freshening" that the body style had for MY 2001 has added a lot more character to what was a very bland car. I followed a silver '01 530i on my way in to work this morning. Aside from the M5, it's the only E39 that has made me pay attention. Plus, I love the fact that BMW makes a big 6 engine again.

Go drive a 530i. If you think the 5-series has softened too much over the past 15 years, stick with your 535i. I test drove several 5-speed 528i's. The cars feel very different than even my E34 535i.

Good luck. Either way, you can't lose.
