First change I made, was BBS wheels and back to the PS2's albeit a little wider (275 rear, 255 front). Much better immediately, the side to side response is much better than those awful Conti's. You seem to feel the convertible is a bit sloppy? I almost bought an 05 S4 back a ways and I thought the M3 was a much better drivers car..maybe the newer S4 has improved?
Mine came with the Pirelli's . The handling was OK, but they were completely worn out a 6K miles.

Then came the Pilot Super Sports. The handling was much better. Then came the Dinan stage 2 suspension. The Dinan made a significant improvement in handling; quicker turn-in and less understeer.

I do not find it floaty at all. I find it to be well connected to the road.
