I have a x28i and I voted that its no different than any other vehicle (Audi A3). I hade a 2006 X3 and that had serious problems. If you slammed on the pedal it would jump then suddenly stop for half a second as if you slammed the breaks, then accelerate again. After multiple complaints and software upgrades it never got fixed.

I don't have anywhere near that problem with the X1. Even with the engine stopped, it starts and accelerates without any hesitation. I do notice that if I jam the pedal hard it takes a tenth of a second longer to accelerate (probably while it figure out what gear to use). But if I gradually press the pedal down it accelerates without hesitation. Maybe since i babied the car during the break in period its ok now, IDK. Hope that helps.
