I don't know if you've experienced an HPF car in person but they have some serious turbo lag, much more than most M drivers would be willing to put up with and waaayy more than an N54 or N55.

Search the web and you'll find some complaints about the MP4-12c's turbo lag, too. I read a forum post from an owner who said it felt pretty boring below 3,000RPM
the e46 m3 was fast enough without boost. the boost is just a bonus.
