I have already paid for the fronts and rears through Blackcircles Neilr, and they are due for fitting on Monday. I really wanted the same make and designation of tyre on both ends, but they just didn't have the fronts in SC7's on the site.
I had looked up tyres on BlackCircles about a month ago, and was going to go for the Pirelli PZero's all round, but they seem to have jumped a bit in price since then.
It's cost £876 for the Continentals, was £960 for the P Zero's a month ago, but now is £288.13 rear and £218.95 front each inc fitting, totalling £1014.16
I read the reviews on BlackCircles and the Continentals seemed to be better than either the Dunlops or Pirelli's. I also read some threads on here talking about thin sidewalls on both the latter.
I am a bit biased against the Dunlop Sport Maxx's that are on it at the moment, although they were on about 3mm all round when I got it and are around 2mm now.
I am getting more road noise inside the car than I expect from a Jaguar, and it's a bit of a handful, especially in the wet, because it steps out so easily.
I am having to remember to put the DSC on whenever I start it to avoid broadsiding from A to B.
It does make driving interesting though when I forget the DSC, keeps me alert
