so I'm looking at a 2009 e92 328i 6A, now i understand that its only 230hp so how the hell do they run low 6s in 0-60 and mid 14s in the 1/4 mile when it takes 280-300hp for cars like the new mustang V6?

It's not heavy, and it's just a well-engineered car. The horsepower number is a big determinant of straight-line performance, but there are so many other factors which incrementally can compose significant changes. How all those changes manage to overcome the enormous egos of BMW drivers, though, I guess I don't have an explanation for that.

Almost bought one.. Decided to wait a day and picked up something else. As said before, HP only tells part of the story. The 3er is a much better engineered car then say the v6 mustang.
