They were OK but my car tore through this set pretty fast. And it didn't feel like my M3 was very stable over heavy braking zones, elevation changes and fast switchbacks. I know part of that is the non-EDC suspension and the weight of the car but my 330 (with RS3s) never felt nearly this fidgety. I recently drove the M3 with NT01s, got one dry session in...and it felt planted in turns where before I was either having to go much slower or just slide the car through.

I know I probably should have gotten the car with EDC or just put some coilovers on by now but I'd rather be grumpy and complain.
