Had them on a 2004 BMW e46 M3. They seemed decent although I never drove the car in rain or snow. Did seem to, as stated here in these reviews, wear faster than the Nitto Motivos we had on our 2006 e90 BMW 330i sedan. We are installing another set of Continental DWS on an e46 BMW 330Ci (staggered fitment again) knowing they probably won't last as long as the Nittos but I think they are a more capable tire for a wider variety of road conditions although we never would drive them in snow. 4 square studded snows are the only way to go in snow IMHO. And we have a 4x4 truck for that. But for shoulder seasons where you might encounter something less than drive pavement in British Columbia mountain passes... they do the trick.

I've had these tires since I got fed up with cheap tires that didn't grip like tires should, could not have been more pleased from making the swap. These tires handle amazing in any condition and don't put a crazy big dent in the wallet
