My feelings also.  They came on the used 1994 90CSQ I bought.  After 3000 miles I couldn't stand it any more.  Bought Hakka snows for the winter, had them mounted on the rims the MXV4s were on, and threw away the MXV4s.  (Still *plenty* of tread left.)  Very vague steering feel, *no* grip.  For a cheap tire I much prefer the Yoko 509s.  (Won't be buying them for this car, though.)
