I think what some perceive as lag may be the response of the drive by wire electronic throttle. It can be really annoying. It was awful in my 3 series, even in sport mode. Had to buy a $300 Sprint Booster, which helped quite a bit.

I like the slight lag cause the power comes in all at once after and feels good!

Only noticeable in Comfort and Eco, which I believe intentionally retard the pedal feel a bit so it's not so touchy. In sport, I feel like the pedal feel/responsiveness is perfect

On a somewhat related note, I have read that an actual horse produces around 15 horsepower.
From Wikipedia. The peak power over a brief time is ~15 hp. For agricultural work and horse type it is ~1 hp

In 1993, R. D. Stevenson and R. J. Wassersug published correspondence in Nature summarizing measurements and calculations of peak and sustained work rates of a horse.[13] Citing measurements made at the 1926 Iowa State Fair, they reported that the peak power over a few seconds has been measured to be as high as 14.9 hp (11.1 kW)[14] and also observed that for sustained activity, a work rate of about 1 hp (0.75 kW) per horse is consistent with agricultural advice from both the 19th and 20th centuries and also consistent with a work rate of about 4 times the basal rate expended by other vertebrates for sustained activity.[13]

Imagine still getting the rush of power but with no perceived lag, that feels even better. I've found that is what my BMS Pedal Tuner allows to happen.

So I guess while a horse has 15 peak horsepower, output at any given time depends on the RPM's of the horse...

The only lag I notice sometimes in my 3.3 is the gas pedal, especially if it's right after braking.
