I can vouch for stock 335i pulling on an Sti. Got smoked twice when I had my Sti! But, if you KNOW how to launch an AWD from a dig you have an initial advantage. top end though? probably not.
a highly modded (enphasis on highly not ricey) might be a different story....
Sti's and BMW's are night and day though....not even in the same class. As stated before, the Evo is better suited for comparisons
