I agree that it's bad and that it could likely be the throttle mapping, that said I didn't find it to be that difficult to adapt to, the F10 is pretty much like the E60 535i in this regard maybe even quite a bit better. Some E60s like the ferious 535xi loaner I had for a while had a brutal turbo lag, I'm used to it though from my early SAAB turbo days and personally do not find this to be much of an issue even if a more linear power delivery is preferable, especially to save the drive train from the wifey's neck snapping take offs
