I would NOT recommend P6's. They handle fairly well on the dry, but in the
wet, the handling is absolutely terrible. My Honda Accord shod with cheapo
tires does a *much* better job. I am looking at the D60 A2 (not the more
expensive D40 M2) as a replacement. Cost is a factor in this. Tire rack
has the P6's at $68 and the D60 at > $60 - my friend has found them to be
good on his Integra, so I assume they will handle well on the Audi
(Audiphiles - comments ??).
Hope this helps ?

With Audi used car prices, it's a superb deal in the price range. Wished
I had spent more and got the newer V6's though. More power never hurts.
