But if you drive in any manner I would consider approporiate on public roads, then yes, the PSS is comparable, more comfortable, and will last much longer.
Thanks for the answer. Well I don't drive like I need the Cups on, but for example when you shift at high rpm 1-2 or even 2-3 there's a little too much wheelspin on the PS2 for my liking. I think the regular Sport Cup is stiffer and stickier than the + version for BMW, but it sounds like it's still a very noticeable difference to the PSS.

I've had my car for 3 years and almost 10 months now, fishtailing when you just want to accelerate quickly has worn off, it's only fun when you want it... I guess I just got used to a lot more grip without the car trying to oversteer (as much) when exiting the turn.
