Given 100% while driving a Audi A6 3.0 TDI Quattro (245/45 R18) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
So far, amazing tire. One of the best ever made. It grips and it handles so much better than the eagle f1 asymmetric6, the previously fitted on this car, and the wintercontact ts 850 p on another. And the comfort, its like the car is floating. Not cheap though.

Nice tyre for initial review. Comparing them to fulda kristall Control HP2 at first GY is much more comfortable and quiet. Drove on bridgestone turanza t005 to change to GY, must say you feel the difference when you switch to winter tyre (16 C outside). Winter tyre on this conditions is much more softer and has less feedback on steering. I was driving quite fast and can say lateral grip is not for fast driving i will need to do review again when true winter is at the doors. But for now i highly recommend it for initial review. Comfort and noise level is top notch.
