Talking Continental DW tires rock!

The icing on the cake is a rebate for an Nook simple Touch from Continental as a rebate.

I'll update you all when I've at least broken the tires in.

I agree, the Continental Extreme Contact DW is whisper quiet and even with the stiffer suspension geometry and SVT rear sway bar, I still feel like I'm wafting in the clouds. Then again, I'm also driving around in the initial break in period --- so no real hard driving though I'm amazed by the grip from them vs my previous tires.

I'm pretty sure I love the way my car is right now - feels like the finished project that I somewhat projected I'd get about a year ago.
