If they provided a choice of two diesel models, I wager they would sell more 320d models than 335d models.
I agree with your conclusions for the majority of buyers out there. I've been bitten by the performance bug many years ago and am not ready to step down to a slower vehicle at this time. For me, I am willing to pay the price for speed/quickness etc. If however I lived in the city and did 90% of my driving there though, I'd be stepping down, way down in terms of wanting/needing performance. Just wouldn't get to use it and therefore it would make no sense.
