I can't answer why so many here appear obsessed with performance specifications, especially 0-60 times and distance to brake. Neither aspect of these cars is going to hold you back in even aggressive street driving.
These cars make lousy drag racing machines for a variety of reasons. This is not a criticism of the car; they simply are not made to do this well and there are much better choices and for less money. If one is serious about drag racing, an F30 is a dreadful choice.
As you probably know, horsepower is addictive. Even worse, like other addictions, you quickly become accustomed to what you have - and need more.
I suspect it comes down to a desire to claim "My car is faster" and other bench racing needs.
