check out Car and Driver's most recent comparison test of summer tires, on their website. Tirerak,com also has good surveys where buyers have rated tires, by attribute.
I have a 328i with sport package and have Continental Extreme Contact DW. Decent traction in both dry and wet, good treadwear rating.
