No, no it does not. Unless you compare them on the same dyno and on the same day comparing dyno numbers is not very accurate. The current 2015/2016 STI makes about 20 WHP more than the previous...

I am not sure about the Legacy but you can completely turn off all the nannies in the WRX. You really won't need them because the AWD systems is so good.

Did you consider the new WRX? It is surprisingly roomy for its class and performs better than the 328i. Of course it is still a tin can in comparison but it costs much less.
