Mein Auto: 2011 535xi
I just had some fun with this since it's been a while since I priced out a car, not to mention the option packages are quite different from when I ordered in 2011. This is what I would get, based on my experience with having my 535xi:

535xi
BASE MSRP
$55,400
Jet Black (I don't mind taking care of my car, I really don't like sparkly paint. Personal preference.)
$0
Black Dakota Leather
$0
Aluminum Trim
$0
Cold Weather Package
$950
Driver Assistance Package
$1,900
M Sport Package (Really prefer the "regular" sport pkg from '11 and '12, but this is next best. Not a fan of the ricey look of the M, but it's still much better than non-M.)
$2,900
Sport automatic transmission with shift paddles (Best value EVER!)
$500
Multi-contour seats (Had these in my E60 as well, once you've had hard to go without.)
$1,300
Navigation system (For cursory reasons)
$1,900
Real Time Traffic Information
$0
Smartphone Integration
$0
BMW Apps
$250
Premium hi-fi system (This is a must.)
$875
Online Information Services
$0
Destination & Handling:
$895

As cool as the HUD is, I was trying to keep the price below $67K. I have the sunshades now and never use them -- I feel it blocks the rear window too much. Would maybe get those auto hi-beams for $250. I did not order Comfort Access for $1K, and I've driven tons of cars with it, and still am not a fan. Same with Sirius.
