Hmmm, thanks for the input. Did you get a chance to try them out in a little snow or maybe some rain? I can get the Exhilarates for around 660 so I’m thinking that’s a good price for a HP A/S. I almost went with the AS3+ and the DWS 06 but the Exhilarates are cheaper for me to get mounted locally. At least for now . I have heard good things about the new AS4S, too.I drive a MK6. I have owned a few sets of the Michelin AS3+ and really enjoyed them. The last time, I tried a set of the Exhilarates. I can’t wait for them to wear out. They aren’t bad. They just don’t feel as crisp as the Michelin’s. I find it harder to not spin tires on takeoff as well.
