The above is no longer true. It may have been true 10-20 years ago, but tire technology has come a long way.

First, today's UHP all-seasons rival the performance of max performance summer tires,...

Nonsense, the A8 rocks. It's faster than a DCT where it matters (WOT upshifts). It will disappoint if you like to pick random gears for no reason though, it's slow and laggy to do that. ...

As Shakespeare might say "To GS or Not to GS, that is the question!"

I bought my GS because, since new, felt my September 2013 built C7 Z51 tires were a bit anemic! My C6 Z51 with less power had...

You were doing just fine until that cheap shot. If Corvettes are beneath your dignity, leave for the rarefied air of your lofty superior choice. That's an arrogant attitude if you ask me. I doubt...

Yup, Agree with 16/C7Z. Everything is relative. But again a couple of rich millionaire I know is the cheapest people you will ever meet. Maybe that is why they got rich.

While it does adjust the ride comfort/stiffness in my opinion it isn't necessarily needed in a base car. My base '16 without rides better than my previous '06 with mag ride. In my '06 I never changed...
