It's totally a different feeling. I tested a 530, then a 525, then finally a 540. I bought the 540. The driving pleasure is exceptional. Great acceleration, handling, braking and just knowing you have a top of the line car.

Now the drawbacks. Maintenace is high if you use the dealer. I recently started using an independent when he quoted $105 for rear brakes and $70 for the oil service vs. $200 and $180 from the dealer.

Additionally, becasuse of the age of the car, there will be annoyances such as worn items, rattles and things simply breaking.

Besides that, I really enjoy driving my car.
