*URGENT*!Who would win in a drag race?

I have a 2011 Mustang Premium Convertible with AUTOMATIC transmission with a 3.7 Liter DOHC V6 Naturally Aspirated Engine with a Strut Bar and my friend has a 2010 BMW 135i with AUTOMATIC transmission with paddle shifters, With M sport Pkg with V6 3.0 L twin turbo engine. We BOTH have 305 HP and I have 280 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm torque and he has 300 lb-ft @ 1,200 rpm torque. Pictures of each of our engines are attached. Who would win in a drag race? The Mustang or the BMW? Please be honest. If the BMW is likely to win how can I beat it without upgrading anything? I am planning to use Premium Gas (93 Octane) for the race. Please let me know other things I should do without upgrading anything in order for me (The Mustang) to beat him. Please let me know as soon as possible.

Depends on the length of the race......1/8 mile, it will be close but I will put my $ on the Ford...1/4 mile, the turbo's will kill you in the upper end.

Probably the BMW. It weighs apx. 200 pounds less & and has more torque. If you have 2.73 gears it will be worse.

Why wouldn't you just race and see who wins??? I don't understand why people post stuff like this, line them up and get it done you'll never win them all! and the sooner you realize that the better.

If both cars get good traction and both of you have a good driver mod, the Bimmer will win even if you use 93 gas. It can do 0-60 in the high 4's-low 5's and low-mid 13's in the 1/4. Your Stang can do mid-upper 5's and high 13's-low 14's.
