Mein Auto: 2011 X35i Sport Activity
Turbo lag is not responsible for the lag you're experiencing in the E70 X5. It has to do with the computer taking time to decide how far the accellerator is being pushed and then downshift the new 8-speed so the gerbals are working in their performance band. If your using the "D" setting, this takes roughly 1 1/2 seconds -- slightly less when in "DS". I've had the latest control software installed in my 2011 xDrive35i with no improvement. If they've fixed this in the 2013, more power to you!
