Just sounds like they are over complicating things but since we are talking at M-Division I will hold my tongue until I test it myself, but I still would wait a year or so before buying one just to see how reliable it was.
Definitely - there is a turbo lag in cars with N54 and N55 engines. I had two E92 335i - '07 and '09, both with 6 MT. Comparing it to my current car - '11 E93 M3 6MT - there is world of a difference in throttle response, mostly due to turbo lag.

I'm not worrying about reliability - that's what the warranty is for.
