The 3 series buyer wants a nice car in that size range that has excellent utility and handles well with all the smart bells and whistles. I don't know many 3 series buyers that are buying because of the 0-60 times or the skid-pad number.
With you living in San Francisco, I'm sure you can appreciate a car that can handle the hills and turns with ease, and have the power on demand. In my area of PA, we have mostly hills and narrow winding roads that one really needs a car that has the power and great handling abilities. That's what always attracted me to buying BMWs because they did handle so well. It had nothing to do with track times.
