The biggest difference is the more restrictive single exhaust muffler of the 535i which translates into about a 10whp loss. Shiv reported in E90post.com preliminary dyno results of 315 whp and 342 lb-ft. back in June back in June for a Procede equipped 535i with V1.47 with plenty of power left untapped. Procede V2.0 software should be out shortly with new dyno results for both the 335i and 535i.

Considering there are dragslips of Procede and Xede equipped 335i's with running mid to high 12's, there's no doubt a Procede v2.0/Xede v1.5 equipped 535i would out perform a 550i at the track, at the strip, and at the pump.

It would also probably outrun your E39 M5.

The $9K difference between a 535i and a 550i will go along way towards buying a bunch of other goodies like exhaust, forged wheels, and a BBK.

For my 2nd car, I'd buy a mainstream hybrid like a Civic, Prius, or Altima. Seriously. We might as well learn what these cars are all about because before long, a lot of us will have at least 1 parked in the driveway. If rumors hold true, the next evolution of the Prius will get over 90mpg.

I'm not suggesting a hybrid for you. I'm just thinking out loud about my personal choice. What ever you decide for both vehicles would likely be a good choice.

thanks for the info. It is very helpful. I agree with you 100% Im 99% sure im going with the 535 for one of them. And the 535 like you said is a much smarter choice than a 550. Its much lighter to and with the proceed will smoke a 550. I wish they would put that motor in the E70. I would get one of those also
