re Michelin tyres
I'm at 32,000 miles on my S5. I am just going to PS3s having had PS2s. The car was supplied with Dunlop Sportmaxx GTs which, although thought the best tyre currently (and I have to say it was fantastic in the dry, and gave me 20k miles), were so dangerous in standing water once they had a few thousand miles on them that I vowed never to have a set again. The PS2s were almost indistinguishable in terms of dry performance, but WAY better in proper wet conditions. I am going to PS3s since they promise same or better all round performance as the PS2s, but better wear. I only got 12k out of the PS2s, which was disappointing at £260 per corner.
