Tirerack is your friend. You can even sort based on owner reviews on these tires to restrict feedback to BMW owners.

Try this link, and in the "filter by vehicle" field, select BMW ...

I put a set of PSSs on my car and absolutely love them.

Also take a look at this table, in the same performance "Max Performance Summer" category. The S04 comes out in second position, with the Michelin PSS in first slot.

If you want a more aggressive category, look at this table (Extreme Performance Summer):
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/survey...ay.jsp?type=EP

This is the category where I picked mine, and I went with the Bridgestone RE-11's, because I track my car, as well as daily drive it.

Car and Driver article and Tirerack both placed these tires in #1 and #2 positions.

I've been very happy with my S-04's. Crisp turn in, even wear, grip has been great!
