Having covered around 700 miles now, I am noticing a slight hesitation when changing gear and accelerating gently. This is also apparent when releasing throttle, then gently pressing again, especially at low speed.

It seems worse with a hot engine, and can't be noticed from cold.

Its too early to tell yet if it may be a slight issue worth of service attention, or just the car settling down from new.

Has anyone else noticed anything similar? The car is a F56 SD.

I can't speak for the diesel, but I think I know what you're talking about. I get the same kind of thing when feathering the throttle, e.g. when I'm in a parking lot and just squeezing off and on as I creep. I've experienced the exact same thing on other turbo cars and automatically chalked it up to the turbo in this one. If we're talking about the same thing, basically, it's just a type of turbo lag.
