A stock 335i isn't a slow car by any means to be honest and I doubt even a tuned Focus RS would show it a clean pair of heals, however it doesn't feel as fast as it is for several reasons.

The engine has been tuned to behave more like an NA so you don't get the wait wait kick in the back that you do from other turbo cars, it also has a tonne of sound deadening and is more refined than most turbo cars so it doesn't feel that fast. Lastly it's quite a heavy beast, even more so in E93 guise which again blunts the kick in the back feeling.

However a JB4 will transform the car and give you that feeling of riding on a surge of turbo boost that I suspect you are after.
