As a point of reference, I bought from an individual a used 97 528i with 20K miles 15 months ago and paid $35,000. It had every option you listed except it was a 5 speed. It also had additional options and beautiful AC Schnitzer wheels. I would think that a 98 with similar mileage at this point would not be over $35000. When I bought mine, people were asking $4-5K more but I don't think they were getting it.
I agree that the values from KBB are inflated. When I bought my car the KBB retail price was listed just under $40000. I use the preowned car valuation available on the autosite.com homepage instead. I have found it to be quite accurate.
