The 135i lag and lag in throttle response is HORRIBLE. Its my fiances car and even she complains about it.

The evos were different - lag was due more to boost but throttle response was much better (small ass turbos).
I know thats true but what if you dont want to modify?

I guess with the dinky turbos on the s55 with the added tech it shouldnt be that bad. But still not on par with a proper na setup.

Back in the fast and furious days i still preferred a high hp na setup than anything else and i still stick to it.
