At its worse I think it is a few seconds from the time I push down the accelerator to anything happening.

Has anyone tried the Throttle Body Adaptation reset mentioned in this thread?

It looks like a software update fixed the 5 series acceleration lag issue. I am contacting my dealer about my X1. If enough of us speak up, hopefully BMW will release the same fix for the X1 series.
Yes, it's scary to drive with such an unpredictable throttle lag. It's hard to believe to say that my first ever feeling of driving an unsafe car is experienced in a brand new BMW!

The throttle body adaptation reset works, but only temporarily. The lag will come back in a few weeks.
