AH yes. The old "no lag" claim. Remember when BMW stated that about the N54... lol..

Yes anti-lag systems might work.. but good luck seeing that on a street car with all the emissions clamp-down.

No conventional turbo is lagless. For those of us who love that our Ms have immediate and visceral throttle response, a turbo will never do. Yes; you can get around it with gearing and so forth. But you'll come to miss it. Even in the new M5.
