Given 59% while driving a BMW Z3 (145/40 R17 W) on mostly country roads for 12,000 spirited miles
Dry grip is quite startling but sudden break away is a problem. My car is light and powerful but in the wet the tyre still performs well. Wear is OK(ish) approx 12k of mixed cruising and hard driving. These have performed better for grip than the Perelli P6000 that were fitted before but obviously wear rates are higher. The side walls are softer on the Contis too which took a little getting used too.

Given 67% while driving a Volkswagen CC (235/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 8,500 spirited miles
With the car coming from the Factory on Sportcontact with Contiseal I was expecting good things. Dry weather handling is good and wet wether performance was not bad up to 6k miles. Then it become all to easy to spin an inside wheel before T/C cut in. Fuel economy has been exceptional for a 200 ps Turbo diesel. Road noise was more than expected though. Braking and straight line stability are very good with progressive grip on the limit , easy to judge when to ease off. Never needed any air or rebalance over their life of....8500 miles and worn evenly to 2.5 mm. These have been replaced with Pirelli P Zero and I have just read they did well in a test of slightly smaller 225 size. Giving them a try on CC as I have them on my Audi TT and found they cope well handling the 3.2 v6.

Given 80% while driving a Vauxhall Corsa (155/65 R15) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
Eats up the corners, dead Impressive, until I got a nail in one and had to change to Barums, which compared to the contis, we're average at best.

amazing grip in wet and dry no understeer at all but they wear after 6000k miles but back lasted 12k, all round very good for grip if you drive hard :)
