I have them on my E92 M3 when I bought them in London a few months back. 2000 miles and the thread is nearly half gone. Really hard to use them in the damp not to say wet, as it is so damn slippery.

In the dry - now thats a different story. I personally find that the Cups have so much grip (probably at least 20% more). Finally swap them out (including the wheels) and save the Cups for track days.
