The downpipes on this thing have huge cats, I'm sure a lot of sound/power to get from there. I'm fine stock for now

Glad you asked. Traction in the RS4 was never an issue. M5 has lots of grip in corners, but traction off the line could use some work. The PSS are really good tires, but DSC still manages to flash unexpectedly. Not much of an annoyance, knew it came with the territory. I only give it liberal amounts of throttle from a roll, otherwise I am pretty gentle. I'll try MDM when the weather warms up a little. I wonder if the stock rear wheels can accommodate 305s...
