FWIW, here in EU (or at least in Poland) BMW is even more inconsistent with their oil change recommendations (or perhaps simply more greedy with the "Free" maintenance schedule). Before LCI (July...

On a motorway, my 528xi with Racechip is quicker than EU-specs 530xd (same as the US-specs 535xd) from the start up to the 260 km/h it is doing, and on the distance it reaches this maximum speed...

Haha - good question. Of course it's not, but in the type of fun car the Golf R is, it's more than adequate. And of course I'm keeping my 528xi for long, relaxed trips:)

It's actually both, with the stress on "refinement". Also, I should have added in my OP that - besides the N20 engine not being smooth and powerful enough for such a big car the F10 is - I also find...

Good for you (and you wife), but what has jerking in common with the hesitation we're discussing in this thread?

Guys - it's not just "early builds" - the throttle lag happens in all turbo-gasoline cars, F10 and others. I've ordered a Golf R (for the fun factor, and as a DD for my wife) and on the VW forums...

That sounds more like it, as - I'm not sure if you noticed - going DSC OFF completely disables Sport mode and leaves you in Comfort (or Normal, whatever it is called in various BMW markets). So it...

If you do, then I beg to disagree - this car can take you by surprise with DSC completely off...

PS. Perhaps the verb "whoring" was excessive on my side; sorry for that - didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings.
