model differences

hey guys I am looking at getting a 5 series. I have found two that I really like. a 2019 530 with a few packages, and a 2018 with a lot more packages. price is the same. Is the 19,mechanically, any different than the 18. I guess what iam asking is, how much has bmw improved the 19model yr over the 18 model yr

Yep - you are not going to notice anything I wouldn't have thought. If one has more options that you want/need then go for that irrespective of year.

Biggest difference is that the 2018 has been sitting around for some time. The oil is old, etc.

I would verify they gave done storage maintenance on the 2018. Including oil changes... Since oil would have been sitting over a year...

I would plug in the VIN to make sure you see all the "packages"
