I agree with you to an extent. No doubt that most of us won't even track or push our cars to the extent that made BMW the best in this segment but personally, you don't even have to that with a 3-Series to feel and know it's sport-driven when compared to an A4 or C-Class. Right when you step on the gas, you can tell the difference from the steering to the suspension, everything is hard-feeling. I don't need to rev the car to 7000RPM to know what a BMW is about. I can't say the same for the A4 or C-Class. Maybe the C250 closes that gap but with the C350, it's definitely not there.

I think that's what people fail to understand. They think it's just a badge and if it's not that, it's rarely will you push a BMW to actually experience it. Many don't know that there is a difference even when you're just driving from point A to B.
