My vote is firmly with the Dunlop Sport 4000's for performance all season
tires...loved the D40M2's for the dry...yet to try the Sport 8000's. 
They've all been better than P7's or P700Z's on my TQC.

My vote for Michelins would be the XGT-H4's or V4's...excellent results on
my wifes old Acura coupe and far superior to the original MXV's.  And the
Eagle GA's that Audi loves and are on my wife's present '93 90S are solid
but absolutely uninspiring tires that I can't wait to replace.
