They also come stock on BMW 740IL and I agree with Ken.... they absolutely suck in wet weather and snow. If all your driving is dry then they are great but they hydroplane really easy and offer little to no snow traction, quite confusing considering their tread pattern.
I drove a set for about 40k and could not wait to get rid of them. I went with Yokohama AVS S4 and have been quite satisfied so far (about 3k). The sidewalls on the Yokohama are also a little softer which leads me to believe they may wear a little quicker. If you want to stick with Michelin maybe the 6000 or 7000 is better but the Yokohama are def. worth a look.
ps: they only cost about $75ea. vs. about $120 ea.
