What a difference over the OEM Conti's! The runflats have come a long way, but the comfort difference is no longer (to me) worth the price of a new set of tires. That being said, the 335d has prodigious and intoxicating torque (this ain't your granddaddy's diesel) and from day one with the OEM Conti's that torque could tear the wheels loose in the first 3 and sometimes 4 forward gears causing the traction control to kick in, to the point that I wished I had got the 18's with summer rubber. These tyres fixed that problem. I have been the proud owner of an M3 and M5, but this diesel without a doubt, is the best car I've ever owned now that she's wearing the right shoes!
