Reasonably, the Dunlop 208s would probably be the best fit, based on opinions I've received here regarding the Bridgestone BT014s. I, however, am going to try the BG014s on my '03 F4i for my own analysis and piece of mind.

I've heard good things from both tires, but the bridgestones are cheaper, with probably just as good performance.

I just ordered the Michelin Pilot Power front and rear from www.kneedraggers.com and I am waiting for them to arrive. I hope that they live up to all the hype!
