    Of course!

    Nah.. my comment you referenced wasn't for stock WRX vs 335xi. It was an outside ref to a run in I had that day with a 335xi (and, yeah, I am way from stock )

    When my car was protuned Stage II plus a few extra mods (just intake and header), I was able to take down one of those M5's by a few cars. We raced from down low (not a dig), so I can't say it was all launch; however, if we would have gone any faster than we did (up to 90ish), I would have gotten destroyed. Just drive as perfectly as possible.

    I can tell you that it would take one helluva WRX to compare to a 335. I own a 335 and it is much faster than a WRX and probably faster than an STi. They have similar weights and the 335 has a better drivetrain and more hp and tq. With exhaust and em 335's are putting down close to 400 whp. How are you going to **** with that?

    It was a stock 335 (xi), not modded. I'm putting down 315whp/334wtq (thats a bit more than the stock 335's 300bhp). And it proved to be the case in action. That's how a modded WRX could do that...

    And how I'm I going to **** with a modded 335? Easy, that's what I have the Goat for...

    i agree

    agreed

    EDIT: people have 335i's in the 11's @115+ mph with CAI, exhaust, and engine management on drag radials. Holy frijoles.
