So who has replaced their runflats?

I should be picking up my car in 2 weeks and my previous experience with runflats was not great. While my thoughts was to stick with the LS2s through the winter, I am now thinking about replacing them sooner. The TireRack survey (that they no longer post) shows them as one of the lowest ratest grand touring tires. They also look particularly weak for winter use, even for an all season, with scores in the low 3s to mid 4s. Given that, I am leaning towards replacing them with Continental ExtremeContact DWS which I have on my other car. So, have you replaced your runflats? If not, are you happy with the LS2 or just waiting until they need to be replaced?

PS - I know this topic has been debated to death on the forums in general, but not so much on the F25 - X3 page. Based on a search, it seems the question gets asked at times, but there are not many respondents who actually changed them out (other than winter tires).
