I've enjoyed BFGoodrich KDW NT, they last quite well, are quite grippy, especially in wet, and look killer! Plus they have a lot of sizes and are relatively inexpensive. Nitto is another one to look at, not as good, but quite inexpensive. I have Pirelli P Zero Neros on my bug right now, havn't driven them though, but talked to a guy who has them on his GTI and loves them compared to many he's tried. The RA-1s are great, but wear pretty fast and are not cheap, and the Michelin Cup is just plain expensive. The comprimise would be the RA-1s, very grippy, fair wear, and not too expensive, but they will wear twice as fast as the ones mentioned first.

If I could just get paid for my sleepless nights....
