A fully loaded 128i comes it quite a bit lower, and you can get a well optioned 135i, or even a 135is under 50k.

I would keep the highlighted ones. Also, as someone else stated, you can get into a nicely equipped 335 for a price close to this, and some of these options are standard (ex. lighting) on a 335. If there are any additional keeps, I would go with the parking. I have the DA package instead of the Parking, and I would have preferred to have the PDC and RVC.

For the tranny, skip the AT, and go with the 6MT. You're getting a sport line. drive it like a sports car. Also, remove the X-drive and go with RWD. Save 2K right there.
Its nice to get back to the OP's subject matter instead of all this talk about money BS, who's got what. Who really cares what anybodies financial status is I know I don't its not doing me any good one way or another.
cheers
