There is less lag with the K04 compared to the K03 because of the K04's twin scroll design..
i agree i think turbo lag adds character and fun to an engine, much prefer this than a larger engine chewing loads of fuel at ALL times. Nothing better than hearing that whistle build up and whoosh your off - even in a diesel its fun! S3 must be so much better - something i will know about on weds as im having a test drive in one!
Completely agree. I looked at a few cars before settling on an s3. My first test drive was in a 350z and that left me underwhelmed. I soon realised how much more fun turbo'd engines were. Coming from a mkv gti I loved flooring it at 1500rpm and riding the smooth wave of torque that would kick in after a few seconds.
All depends on what floats your boat. A mate of mine is always raving about smooth revving naturally aspirated engines. I'd take a turbo every time.
