I will second that one. My friend and I were on a road course, I'm a ESS Twinscrew supercharged 330 and my friend has a 135i with a chip. He was slowly started to pull away from me and next thing I knew I passed him while he was deep into the tire wall.

Unfortunately, his turbos kicked in a little harder than anticipated that turn and spun him out into the tire wall. 3 grand worth of damages later....

But my personal preference would be turbo as well, but love my supercharger. Like somebody else mentioned, some boost is better than no boost.
