I've also NEVER seen an F30 BMW 335i sedan run anything close to a 13.1 second 1/4 mile stock. "Supposedly" motor trend had it running a 13.3@103.9mph, and that's the closest I've ever seen to a low 13 second 1/4 mile. I've also seen 1/4 mile runs as bad as 13.8 seconds in the rags.

Let's be clear here. From a roll the Camaro is a good amount faster than the 335i. In the 1/4 mile it'll trap a good 5-7mph faster which is a good indication of the horsepower differentials. It's just harder to get all the weight of the Camaro going off the line.
