Maybe TX135 can confirm but what I experienced was "nothing happening for 1 second and then as I press the pedal more to get it moving then it unleashes the power". The engine was not responding *at all* for one second, that's why I think the two issues are not linked. Just my 2 cents
Ok, yes, that sounds very different than turbo lag. For me the engine always responded... just that I felt more lag.

Btw... Alex your car and TX135i 's are both DCT right? Maybe its something in the way that trans behaves. I would talk to your dealer and ask if there are any SW updates to address this lack of response.
