    Im running Pilot Exalto 2s on the front, and Primacy HP on the rear. Waiting for some HPs for the front too.
    I get them free, so little 'choice' for me to make.

    Ive got the Conti Sport 3s on my S3 at the mo, and im very impressed with them, nice grip in the wet and dry.

    Ive previously had the Bridgestone Potenza RE050 and they were amazing, so if they are an option or not thought about them, defo look into them.

    the grip of the 5 is the best ive known , but the sidewall is WAY too soft.Feels like driving a 2cv
