Star specs are pretty much the best. If you're looking to go cheaper go hankook v12. I've had both and the hankooks are decent and last longer.

I like my Continental ExtremeContact DW. The Hankook V12 is a great option and the Kumho Ecsta SPT is a good cheaper option too.

The best tyre will be what fits your driving needs, weather/road conditions, and your wallet.

here's my current tire choice

Interesting you recommend Invo's for an M3. I have them on my E90 330i and the wife's SLK350. They are ultra quiet and super comfy, but just a little squishy in the turns.

That said, I'll probably put them on the E36 M3 (when I get it - I'm still shopping). I've been delighted with them vs. any other tire I've bought in the past. They are pretty too!
