You guys have it so good. Comparatively I asked around for prices over here and I got £300 each for Pirellis throught the official distributor or £168 if I could wait for grey europe imports.
In the end I put on Nankangs for £110 each fitted discounted from 140.
All in all it's a good tyre, no grip issues or problems in the wet. The real test will be in the summer here which can reach 40°C plus (so a lot more on the asphalt).
I can't really compare though, because my car came from the UK with 4 different tires and 2 different sizes (all sizes were wrong along with the load index). Car was all over the place. Wheels are 19" TIs.
