Thanks for give some ideas to deal with this sacrilege. I think finally I will buy inmediatelly the MPSS (I've been scouting the Michelin.cl web site and the front tires specs 225/40/R18 could be locally available) with some luck only rear ones 245/35/R18 will need to be imported.
Then, when my car arrives, I will swap the tires ASAP, fortunatelly a close friend of mine drives an 135i coupe (who uses almost same spec tires) and show some interest, so the RF's should be quickly relocated and some cash recovered to mount the proper drivers car tires on my long awaited machine.
Cheers!

Hi Ozinaldo, Sounds great, and of course I would like to meet your "cult car" and to take part in this meeting. Unfortunately WBM's standard units come dramatically wrong equipped (low-end sound system, plastic "sensatec" seats, even no parking sensors, and so on) so I had to specify completely the car and my delivery will take a couple of months.
Last week they offer me a test unit (tangerine orange) for 24 hours and all I can say is the car is fantastic. But I'm afraid the tire capabilities are clearly under the performance of the car. So that’s why I'm trying to arrange the immediately swap of them. Did you bring your Michelin Pilot Super Sport using Tire Rack? Can you tell me the final cost of them? Thanks in advance!

Nope. You'll only get that kind of performance on track days ... and how many of those do you do?
If not track days, then you'll lose your driving licence!
More spec means you'll enjoy it all the more

Great film snip...thanks for sharing
