I test drove both when we got the 540i and the 540i is just a better car overall. Far more refined, smoother, pulls just as hard and sounds better. Don’t get me wrong the 530d is a great car but for the low’ish miles we do the 530d didn’t make any sense at all for us. The 540i isnt it too bad on fuel either - not as good as a diesel but does around 300 - 350 with a mix of town and A road driving , so not bad at all I reckon.

On the sound front, it’s does sound good but way too muted for a 540i so you may find yourself spending on exhausts (like I ended up doing )
