Stock Tires for E92??

I thought the E92 Sport Package tires were Bridgestone RE050's? I just noticed they are Michelin Pilot Sports on my car. This is on the 5 spoke 18" sport package wheels, you know the very common one with wide spokes. Anyone know if they switched tires recently or am I confused?

They have started putting the PS2s on a few select sport package equipped cars. There isnt any particular reason that they chose yours, you were just the lucky winner!

Interesting, wonder if they just had an allotment at the factory and gave them out to a group of cars at that certain time. Or maybe Bridgestone didn't get a delivery in time to them. Or they might be switching over completely?? Guess their are lots of possible reasons.

Id say that one in every 15 have PS2s. They arent very common at all.
