Another vote for the NON-runflat Michelin Pilot Super Sports. I run them for my summer set, and they're quite good--smooth and relatively low noise. Very good grip too.

As an aside: I'm probably...

Hey thanks for the info! I'm considering going this route (Koni FSDs), but have to decide how much longer I'm keeping this car. Bought new (factory order) in '07, has just under 85k miles on it.

Just for fun I want to a big BMW aftermarket supplier and looked at their Koni FSD sets. The first hit was for a shock-and-spring set: Koni FSDs + Eibach springs. I don't want lowering springs....
