hmm...have a 335i as a loaner today.. have a 6 speed e46 m3 in the shop. love the car, but it appears that once you smash the pedal, there is a 2-3 second delay before you feel anything. its horribly annoying to say the least. i tried to switch lanes to accelerate ahead of an oncoming car, the car just stood there long enough to almost cause an accident. it then finally jetted forward. is this typical? is there a way to get around this....aargh. never driven a turbo before and if this is the norm, i never will again.
