What tires are OE equipment on M3s delivered lately?

OK, mine will be a September Production ZCP.

I'm confused how sometimes they arrive on Michelin PS2s and sometimes Continentals...

What brand tires are on the wheels of cars delivered in the last month or so?
Euro Delivery or US Delivery... Doesn't matter.

If it is delivered with Continentals, demand they replace them with PS2s. I hate Continental tires, they are complete sh*t.

I think the 18" only come with Michelin. Correct me if I am wrong. Curious.

Contis---'11 ZCP April Build. I love the tire and don't quite understand the bad press here. PS2 are a great tire as well, but the Contis performed great in the rain, snow and slate (unintended).

Tell us WHY you don't like them. Quite a few of us that have used them in the past have nothing but praise for them. Besides, good luck getting a dealer to replace them just because some retard on an internet forum said they were sh*t.
