Bilstein HDs will give very similar damping to OEM. AT 65k miles, your springs should not be anywhere near worn out, unless the car has been driven over a LOT of severely rutted roads. Given your...

Just to establish my perspective, I've driven any number of 986 and 987 examples, both base and S, and own a base '04. I recently drove a base 981.

The short answer is that there aren't many truly 'bad' name brand performance tires available these days. A competitive market is a good thing. I'm not personally a fan of BFG, but other than that,...
