If you think about it, why would a 1-series be for people who can't afford a 3-series? The 3-series is only slightly more and offers wayyy more practicality and higher "status". It's much more wise to purchase a 3-series in an economic sense.
If anything, the 1-series is for people who like the design (a minority) and are willing to pay for it.
Or the 1M, which is just fantastic.
