i hope the new wheels are worth all the hassle, share with us the new look of your car, what do they weigh?
by the way i found the 528i was well underpowered, unless u really mash the gas pedal down, maybe due to the extra weight,
i think that the 328i is similar to the 535i
The 528i is not under power at all for HK roads, maybe under power for UK or US roads.
Which 528 did you try? old F10 528 which is a Straight 6 and dose not have Turbo with Max torque is only 310 Nm or new engine 528i which is faster with turbo and Max torque of 350 Nm
The new 528 is also faster than the old E60 530i.

with a ECU mod the 528 can boost up to 535i power.
Engine Performance Upgrade Price under $8k hkd
HP gain = 45 hp
Trq gain = 48 ft-lbs

The 535 is fast but has extra weight and at a extra price of about $180k hkd which I think not worth. Also 535i can not get M sport
