I think the hardware is fine. If it isn't, no amount of sport mode can help. The normal mode programming just sucks, and that is the root cause for all of us that is having these lags.

I just hope BMW realizes that the issue is still not resolved and will release software updates for our 2011 builds. Seems they have solved the issues in the 2013 models (from previous posts in this thread).
