338i! Sounds advanced

I just switched to Michelin Pilot Super Sports last week myself and they've got my recommendation. You'll find they're very popular on here, with good reason.

The Bridgestone S04 Pole Position would be a good alternate option that would be under the $1k mark for an 18" staggered setup. These actually tested out quite well in a recent test where they finished just behind the Pilot Super Sport: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tests/...&affiliate=AH8

Bridgestone 960AS RFT. They ride like normal tires.
