Michael:

I've driven both 535i and 530i. I'd get the 535i as I do all my own work and it is easier to work on due to more space. I even liked the inline-6 more as it has a nice noise characteristic. I really did not feel the difference in torque was significant, but I prefer a rising power curve to a bottom-heavy one.

I hav't got the change to drive 535 , I believe it's a good
one . But seems many challenge to the V8 engine even it's new block , so just want to know the disadvantage compare to the V6 engine , less power , driving feeling , broken parts or unreliable design ? any advise appreciated .
