I am with 'wolfex' - I have a 28i sdrive and notice no real difference in lag time between it and my 2009 VW Tiguan (same 4 cyl turbo engine as the Audi A3). When learning to drive, my dad always told me to hesitate a second before taking off from a stop - don't remember the reasoning now, but I tend to ease into the accelerator press so that may be why I don't notice a significant lag time like others are talking about.

Last night after about 20 min stuck behind a vehicle going 20 mph under the speed limit with no opportunity to pass, a passing lane opened up at the base of a hill, he moved over and wham! I floored it and off we took like a rocket - woke the two teens in the back and made me laugh. Absolutely no lag there.
