You base your assumptions on what, the results of your 335I?
As I stated I ran a stock CTS-V with a bolt on "DCT" M3, there's a difference vs a 6MT M3, and yes I was able to hang with a STOCK CTS-V, on numerous runs, the results were posted, it was a few years ago, the vid is no longer up though, regardless you can read the commentary if you need convincing.
My car only made 377whp, and I ran 12.1 @ 116 and 11.88 @ 118, both are in the realm of a STOCK CTS-V with 556 BHP. There's a couple vids on youtube as well where recently a bolt on DCT M3, ran against a stock 2011 CTS-V and their 1/4 mile times and traps were very close, just type in DCT M3 Vs CTS-V
and 3 separate vids will show up. M3post member ERM324 posted that his FBO M3 was a car ahead of a stock CTSV up to 130MPH as well.
Regardless there is enough proof, not just opinion, that it is in the realm of possibility that a Bolt On DCT M3 can "hang" with a Stock CTS-V, in most cases I'd probably give a slight edge to the CTS-V, of course you would need FI of some sort to easily beat a stock CTS-V, a VT535 would easily do the job.
