ActiveHybrid3 - 1 Subaru WRX - 0

So i was on my way home last night and I noticed that there was a new or newer WRX wagon behind me jockeying for position. He got up next to me and we cruised for just a bit and then there was no one in front of us for a little while. We looked at each other and both gave the head nod to run'em.
I put it in sport mode in anticipation of a quick race so when we had the signal to go I was ready. We were rolling at about 70mph and took it up to about 120mph. I quickly got to a car length lead and pulled some more as the speedo steadily climbed. I'm not sure if the subie was modded or if it was a STi or a regular wrx. I always thought that only STi's had the quad exhaust and so did this car but it had no STi badging.

WRX now comes with the quad pipes out back too, not just the STi. I think from a dig a stock WRX would pull a little on a stock 335i (probably an AH3 as well) to about 60-70ish. Those things are really quick from a stand still and have zero traction loss issues. Above 70ish I always felt the BMW would start pulling ahead which jives with your experience.
