My 2008 128i is a stripper too
Halogens, no sunroof, no Idrive. Just sport suspension and heaters sport seats.
in Toronto 135i were at 30k+ when i was shopping for a used car. The 128i was negotiated to just 22k. Rare color too.
Unlike most i do like the halogens, sometimes they reflect the sun and look happy
