Power. That's coming from someone who went from a 320D to a 335D and I can't praise itenough! She is f****n saaaahweeeeet when I feel adventurous and even when I don't I hit cruise control and just relax. I know if I need to, I hit the pedal and I'm gone like the wind and it's such a good feeling to know you have the power there if needs be incase some cocky jocky gives it large in his type R or whatever it is (excludes the AMG/Porsche cars here lol).

Like people have already said, lot of the add ons can be retrofitted which wuold make for a much better combo. As makkan has already said, you can fit options into a 535D but you can't retrofit an engine into a 520D unless you are off the rocker lol.

Again, just can't stress enough just how amazing the 35D is in comparison to the 2.0D..

So think wisely.
This. Wise words indeed.

Definitely go with the engine. Had a similar choice myself recently and went with the engine getting a 330d, and don't regret it for a moment.
