So not required to have sport suspension or slightly lowered car to get benefit of summer tires?

Any summer tire will feel much better than runflats. There is no requirement to have sport suspension or turbos or lowered cars to enjoy the characteristics of a nice summer tire...as long as you use them in the summer (LOL), not today.

It's not like you're upgrading to high performance tires on a mushy 1994 Lincoln. Your BMW suspension is sporty enough, but of course any suspension upgrade you do will be more insync with the higher performing tires.

+1 love mine....I'll keep buying them until something else can beat them. Quiet, good tread wear, amazing dry/wet grip, can be daily driven or beaten on the track.

As long as it's not too cold out summer tires can be used on any car.
