Those mods must be pretty good to get 335 at 3.5s up hill. Never heard of that kind of performance from a 300hp car.
Read my post closer because that's what I said. The 335is has the option of a 6 speed manual or a DCT. It doesn't have the auto transmission option.

The auto transmission is what allowed my car to do a 3.5 0-60 as I could start in 2nd gear and let the torque converter slip. I wasn't at 300 HP. I was at 412/446 RWHP/TQ with tune/meth AND I had a Wavetrack LSD with Michelin PSS 275 30 19 rears.

The fastest RWD n54's measured on the VBOX were Terry Burger's 135 and Warren's (hotrod182) 335 and both were auto transmissions. Both did something like 3.1 second 0-60 times on street tires.

A DCT trans car just wont do that unless you've got DRs or slicks and then good luck with it holding up. The M3's aren't as hard on the DCT since they make a lot less torque. Mine makes 572 RWHP and only 370 RWTQ. Guys with upgraded turbo 335is cars with the DCT are already seeing problems from too much torque.
