Pilot Super Sports. Last much longer than the PS2's they replace. I am 20k+ on them and still reckon there is 10-15k left and that's with me giving them a hard time. Expensive yes indeed but worth it.

I run khumo ecsta spt. Ku31 if I remember correctly, they are great albiet a little noisy, they absolutely scream when you are giving it to them, but are very predictable. I've only had them for 6k so far but very little wear.

Dunlop Sport maxx RT up front
Falken FK452 in back

happy with them so far, got a track day start of may and i'm not going to bother with track tyres first time out in the car, i'm not going to be pushing it too hard, so we'll see how they hold up.

I am currently running Bridgestone Adrenalin re002's, have been fantastic tyres with plenty of grip for those sticky situations spoken about above. Also gets very good wear between 65-70K Kms from the last set. Can't remember exact numbers, however they we're run very low and were a bit tail happy towards the end but 'twas all good fun

I have adrenaline's which are part of the Potenza range, very good tyres in my opinion, haven't let me down yet.

Not a fan personally. They were great to start with, but halfway through their lifecycle the grip dropped off horribly.

PS: When did you nab the M3?! Congrats dude!

Had them on my last car. Average tyre, well, slightly above average. They do have a tendency to go off on hot days or on track days I found. A run through the gorge on Putty Road in summer would have them losing their sh1t about 5klms in. Or about 5 laps in to a 10 lap track session. But as a daily driver they aren't bad at all.
