Maybe it should be "the turbo will not be fully utilized before certain rpm".
I saw the turbo needle of my Saab moved when the car started to move. Most of the torque came out around 2000rpm. I don't need to wait till 3000 or 4000 rpm. However the lag is much more obvious than the 335i.
My co-worker who had a 300Z twin turbo told me he never noticed any turbo lag.

m4d_cow - thanks for the info about the point at which the turbo kicks in.
I am getting around 25 MPG city (all stop and go and roughly 30-45 speed limit for 8 miles to and from work) by not using the turbo. When I first got the car, I was getting around 21 - so I'm not sure if I can chalk that up to winter driving versus summer, or if my lighter foot is having an impact.
At any rate thanks.
