I've driven both a 530 and a 535.

Honestly I this isn't a fair comparison as the 530 is newer, had less than half the miles and didn't have the suspension problems I'm just now fixing on my 535.

530 was smoother at low (< 20 mph) speed. 535 felt faster off the line.
530 seems to have slightly quicker throttle response. 530 was a bit quiter, but both of these might just be age.
If I had been able to drag race them (never happen, the 530 was my father's) I think the 530 would win.

(I didn't buy his 530, glad that I didn't. I think the 535 is a better car)
