    It's just normal Turbo spin up. Bit different to lag,but gives the same effect. One of those things you just have to live with 'fraid.

    If the revs are at say 1500 rpm, and the car is sluggishish, and then at 2k the thing takes off, then they all do that, including mine, and so did my Golf GTTdi. If this is the case then its deffo lag, waiting for the turbo to come on boost and build up compression in the cylinders. If its doing this past 2k then i would suggest a visit to the dealers.
