The competition is tough, and BMWs drive more and more like the competition. A '95 3 series didn't drive like any Toyota, Lexus, Audi or Nissan, it was a very unique driving experience. Today, you could blindfold drivers and they probably couldn't pick out the BMW.
Most drivers dont know the difference between cars. They pick BMW for the same reason others pick mercedes or audi. They want the roundel. BMW's biggest thing going for it is the better residuals and lease numbers compared to audi and mercedes and the free service. THose things are still there. The f30 will outsell the a4 and c class during it's 7 year run.
