So if you're looking at this from an investment viewpoint - looks like a toss up to me. Ride them both and see which one jerks your chain.
Both or either, actually.

The /5 is the beginning of the "modern" BMWs (changeover from the older oldschool /2-line) and the Mystic could be considered the acme of that line (before the journey to the oilie/hexie Darkside).

I like my /5 and will likely ride it til I get obsoleted, but wouldn't mind getting a Mystic for the aesthetics.
