You can't go wrong with either, but since you asked . . .
1) Price: You can buy the nicest E34 M5 or 540i 6-speed less than a nice 528i.
2) Looks: It's a matter of opinion, but a nicely-done E34 is more likely to turn my head than any E39 except for the E39 M5.
3) Exclusivity: If you get an E34 M5, you'll be getting the last of the hand-built genuine ///M cars.
4) res ipsa loquitor
