We always recommend you start your tire search with Michelin tires, Continental or Bridgestone. Specifically, we would suggest Michelin Primacy MXV4 or Pilot Sport A/S+. The difference between the Primacy and Pilot Sport are the performance aspects, where the Pilot Sport has more performance capabilities. They are both all season tires.
Contintental Pro Contact or DWS are our favorite picks for Continental. The Continental DWS is all season, but with more performance aspects than the Pro Contact.
For Bridgestone, we suggest to start with a RE760.
I drive a BMW Sedan and just put on some Michelin Pilot Sport AS and love them! I had to switch to an all season tire and am really impressed with the performance of these.

I'm not sure what part of the country you live in, so I don't know how much of an issue winter driving poses for you. In my opinion Nokian offers an excellent year round option with their WRG2. I would also recommend the Michelin Primacy MXV4 as well as the Hankook Ventus H105.
Please let me know if you need any additional informaiton.

Any of the majors is where to start. Bridgestone, Firestone, Michelin, BF Goodrich, Pirelli, Goodyear. The most important factor is discussing the driver’s needs based on the your expectations of what you want out of the tires and the type of driving you currently do. Do YOU drive alot at freeway plus speeds, mostly in town, do YOU drive the car hard/fast. Lots of questions to ask and based on your answer’s, we would give you 3 or more recommendations.
For example, we currently have over 30 options ranging from $115 to $260 each. Your tire Dealer just needs to discuss your needs and then determine the best tire based on your answers. You have a High Performance car and you can't put ANY tire on to get the best ride & get the performance out of the car....
