If you have 2 people and a lot of luggage you may want to consider supershuttle. BART escalators and turnstiles can be tough to negotiate with multiple pieces of luggage, not to mention the transfer to the bus, etc. all of which requires a minimum of 1 hour from downtown SF. Might be worth paying the extra $30 for door-to-door service + relaxation.

Also, keep in mind that BART does not run before 8am on the weekends and after midnight or thereabouts. So if you are departing before 10am Sunday your chance of making it through the hellacious security are slim, even if you board the first train from SF. And you will be stuck on an expensive taxi if your late-night arrival is delayed.

I find off-airport parking to be the cheapest and quickest option, particularly for trips of <4 days (though admittedly not an option for visitors).
