BMW F11(530xd) vs F31(320xd) considerations

Hi motorists

I face a nice dilemma and would be glad to have a wise word from you:

F31 - YoM '19, 22tkm, 4-zyl diesel, awd, first owner
F11 - YoM '17, 80tkm, 6-zyl diesel, awd, first owner, costs more by a 1000.-

F11 cons for me: only 1 free service left, then every 20tkm a ~CHF 1000.-, higher tax and insurance(although not too different compared to F31), parking space is tight whenever you go

F31 on the other hand: free service up to 100tkm, read for the next 80tkm no to little investments expected, easier parking

F31 cons: louder inside, less pleasure on motorways, less space inside(I am tall), weaker engine

F11 is overall a better car and more expensive to run, someone spoke highly of its engine: https://www.englishforum.ch/3258794-post16.html

I plan to own either of them until for some reason I am not able to - job, regulations, move etc.

I have a feeling in 10 years/100tkm they will cost about the same, prolly 10'000.- if I am lucky, only F11 will cost more to run by about 10-15%, but pleasure-wise should compensate for it.

What would be your pick and why?
