I've just fitted Goodyear Eagle Asymmetrc 2's to the rears at £400+. Fronts are £300+ for the two.
They are supposed to be one of the best tyres out there and have come first on many tests, hence why I bought them.
No not fakes, i think they were being discontinued but were brand new, i'm expecting its going to be more like £90 per tyre for my next tyres replacements. The conti's are only half worn now (18 months old) so i think maybe replace them in 2014 spring/summer time.
For me i prefer continental to goodyear or michelin - i think contis are best suited to german cars
