Is this about right 335i vs Camaro

I just bought a 2008 335i e92 stock and I was in the light with a 2010 Camaro SS. We were both front of the two lanes waiting for the light, he reacted a lot faster than I did. So he had the lead like by 2 or 3 car lengths. His weak gear was third when he and I both shifted to third I gained on him so he was now 1 car length ahead. I reached about 110 mph when I decided to ease off on a 55 mph zone. He beat me by about half a car length when I eased off. I was suprised I could have beat him if I would of reacted faster for sure. I thought I had no chance with an SS. Imagine having JB4? btw I had a passenger and he didn't.

Eh, stock vs stock, he is a bit faster than you if equal drivers and all.

After a tune then the game changes.

Sounds exactly right. Those cars tip the scale at just over 4,000 lb. Find one with heads/cam and all of the bolt-ons, and it could be a fun race with a good tuner on your car and some basic bolt-ons. The manual cars can make right at 500 RWHP with heads/cam, so find some E85 or methanol when ya get a tuner. I'm sure his girlfriend had to bandage a bruised ego!
