Well worth the price. When I picked up the new car earlier this month, I took the wheel & tire insurance too. But I do think these new Conti's are quieter than the last generation tires.
I agree, the Conti's are a much better ride than the Potenza RFTs that I had on my E90. I opted for the 19" wheels so I've got the summer performance tire, we'll see how long they last. Even with the 19s, the car still rides better than the previous generation RFTs.
