I've had 17" Pilot Sport on my ex-A4 1.8t (came standard), was very pleased with them, very progressive and predictable at the limit, not too noisy either. But I think they're quite expensive, even more so with the newer PS2.
I read good reviews on the Goodyear F1 GS-D3, that's what I'll likely go with when I need new tires next summer.
