I have test driven a 535i and did not notice any throttle lag but wonder if it would not be apparent in the excitement of the test drive situation. For those folks that are experiencing it, when did you first notice and start to care?
Yes, I think it gets worse over time. There is a procedure to reset the adpative throttle which pretty much cures the tip-in problem, but then it returns after a week or two. If I were a BMW salesperson, I'd reset the throttle before every test drive.
