I mounted the Bridgestone Turanza LS-V on my sport. They give up a little in handling, but the ride improved and the quietness is amazing. It's like a different car. I'd recommend them highly if you're not a handling-first guy. I'd say the drop off is maybe 20%.
I replaced the original Dunlop 2000s with Dunlop 9000s on my 2001 530i Sport. I wouldn't recommend 9000s, very hard sidewalls, I was constantly rebalancing because of vibration. I then tried some Yokohamas that only lasted 15,000 miles. Now I have Bridgestone Turnanza. So far very good. Can't help on winter, I do high mileage highway driving, no snow.
