Op at the end of the day the n54 is a turbocharged engine, no way to get around spooling up turbos, ds is as good as its gonna get.

That's interesting info. 335 takes off like a monster in D... and it's second gear? I'm not doubting you, just kind of amazed.

I also notice that little bid of lag/delay/hesitation from normal standing start. I keep wanting to compensate with more pedal and end up with a not very smooth take-off.
