No turbo lag here - except occasionally when slowing for a corner and then getting on it. I think the trans holds a gear or three too high. But off the line the X6 50i snaps with basically zero lag (I would say that it is a bit difficult to modulate the throttle - either snapping or going like a snapping turtle ).

PS - While I don't loathe the X6, especially with winter coming up, turns out, I am not a truck guy and can't wait to get back into a car for a daily driver.
